IT NEVER rains but pours for former  Premier Soccer League chairman, Twine Phiri, who started the year by being dragged to court for failing to settle alimony obligations.

Phiri was hauled before a Harare magistrate last week over $9 750 default after he failed to pay school fees and buy uniforms for his children with his former wife Keresiya.

He was remanded out of custody to February 16.

Early last year, he again landed in the dock after he failed to settle over $20 000 alimony arrears.

He was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment by magistrate Lazini Ncube.

Phiri, however, escaped jail after his sentence was wholly suspended on conditions.

He was given an ultimatum to clear his arrears amounting $24 000 by May 30 2017 or risk going to jail.

At that time, he had four more pending dockets at the same courts and the cases continue to accumulate.

Phiri claims that he is no longer gainfully employed and is taking care of an extended family including the offspring of his deceased brother.

In 2016, Phiri was dragged to court over maintenance arrears amounting to $67,551.

Phiri was ordered to pay $2 913 for the upkeep of his children in March the same year.

Court heard he only managed to pay $3, 600 between April and November yet he was supposed to pay $24 680.
