DNA tests show 70% kids not born by men they call fathers
The majority of people are living in the dark
According to a paternity test outfit, Global DNA Zimbabwe, which released its finding, test results for the last 16 months were negative.
Global DNA principal consultant, Tinashe Mugabe, confirmed the revelations and say that as many as 60 couples come for testing every month nationwide, with the majority testing negative.
Of the people that went for DNA tests in January this year, for example, 84 percent of the men proved not to be the fathers of the children involved.
“The majority of people are living in the dark. They don’t know if they are truly the fathers.
“Some people just have an attitude that they just don’t want to have a test but truth be told, the mother has already told the real father about the child and by not wanting to take responsibility they will leave that other man to take care of the child, paying for school and maybe university.
“Imagine after university he comes and says the child is his, the disappointment, the pain,” he said
