- A woman narrated how she was dumped by her husband and left to raise their daughter alone
- According to her, their marriage ended because his family did not approve
- The husband reportedly does not even support the little girl financially and he wants to take her away from her mother
Facebook group I Have a Name shared the story of Gamuchirai, a Zimbabwean woman who immigrated to South Africa shortly after having a baby at the age of 15.
Gamuchirai, which means 'gift', started to work in Johannesburg as a domestic worker to support herself and her baby.
Briefly.co.za gathered she fell in love with a nice man and they decided to tie the knot. Before long, the happily-married couple found out she was pregnant and she had a beautiful baby girl.
However, his family found out about their marriage and they told him to divorce her.
"When his family found out about our marriage they told him to divorce me because we are from different tribes. I am Shona and they wanted him to marry an Ndebele girl," she explained.
Instead of defying his family and staying with his wife and daughter, the man left. Gamuchirai had to work hard to support her two daughters on her own and she took a full-time job as a domestic worker for a family, working for R1 800 a month.
She contacted her ex-husband and asked him to support their daughter. However, he said as long as the little girl is with her, he wouldn't give her a cent.
“There is no way I am giving my daughter to him. I am not leaving her! She is my child , and he will not get her," she said.
She has since started looking for a better work opportunity.
