False accusations and gossip can destroy lives, even if the accused is innocent. Worst yet, especially if one’s reputation is under attack. Sometimes, there is no way you can erase what has happened. Even though the accusations may be unfair and untrue, the situation remains real.
Apart from this, because of the anxiety created because of the allegations, the stress that comes with being wrongly accused can lead a person to act out with those closest to them, like a spouse or child.
Any person in such a situation will do whatever it takes to clear the one’s name.
In recent times, allegations have been a norm within the parliamentary system where government officials are accused without solid evidence that can bring about a charge and subsequent conviction.
Allegations leave a cloud of suspicion over one’s head with most opting not to do anything about it.
It’s unfair that he felt he had to comment upon a matter in which he is the claimant that is presently awaiting trial before the High Court.
If it was me, I’d do everything in my power to clear my name.
