Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has said that the sexual assault cases imposed on him are aimed at tarnishing his name.
The Serbian Wolf sentenced him to two separate three-year jail terms, both of which have been suspended for five years, by Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) court in South Africa.
It is said that the former Zambia tactician inappropriately touched a woman at the Wolfson Stadium who was delivering Coffee during the COSAFA U20 tournament.
In a statement released on October 19th by Micho about the matter, he says that these allegations were aimed at destroying his image and name.
“I issue this statement to categorically dismiss and dispel the mischievous reports alleging my arrest in South Africa. These reports are premised on a well orchestrated plot of some devious and malicious faceless people hell- bent at tarnishing my name and using all means to set me up and cause humiliation to my image, Micho said in a statement.”
He added, “Let it be known factually that upon my appearance in court for a case that was brought by means of character assassination to my name.”
According to the Gqeberha Regional Court in South Africa, the incidents that happened in December 2020 during the regional COSAFA U-20 cup stated that Micho inappropriately touched a 39-year old woman who was delivering coffee.
Court said that while the 39-year old woman was delivering coffee at the Wolfson Stadium when she asked Micho if he would need sugar with his coffee. She said no and added that he needed another type of sugar, pointing at her private parts. She complained about his conduct to her boss who in turn warned Sredojević not to do it again.
However despite all these happenings, Micho says he Cooperated with the various authorities as he is a law abiding person.
“I subjected myself to the South African justice system solely because I am a law abiding person who fully cooperated with authorities from the very beginning even while I knew that I was simply being a target.”
About his appeal, Micho said: “My decision to take the matter on appeal is in total agreement with the Magistrate as she said.
“Another Court May arrive at a different conclusion” which is why my pursuit of injustice can not let the perpetuation of injustice against me go un challenged.”
