Uganda Cranes Boss Micho to appeal Sexual Harassment Conviction

Multin “Micho” Sredojević, 52, was charged on two counts of sexual harassment and consequently convicted on Tuesday by the Gqeberha Regional Court, South Africa

The tactician was sentenced to three (3) years in prison, suspended for five (5) years. However, Micho’s lawyers were granted leave to appeal the conviction.

In a statement issued by Micho, he revealed that the charges are engineered to assassinate his character. “I knew then that I was innocent on the allegations whose intention was to cast judgement upon my character and I reiterate my innocence even today.” Micho noted

According to HeraldLIVE media in South Africa, Micho committed the crime during the 2021 U21 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, when he was still in charge of Zambia’s men’s national football team.

Reports said that he was then accused by a 39-year-old woman to have “touched her buttocks and making inappropriate sexual remarks” to her.

Reports further suggested that the 39-year-old lady had delivered coffee to Micho while watching a football match in the stands, and asked if he (Micho) would want sugar.

Micho, according to the reports, responded by saying he wants another type of sugar and pointed to the woman’s private parts before touching them.

According to Micho’s employers Federation of Uganda Football Associations -FUFA, the Cranes gaffer is expected to resume his duties as soon as possible.
