Uganda Cranes coach Micho found guilty of sexual assault,slapped with five-year sentence

Uganda cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been found guilty of sexual assault by the New Law Court in Gqeberha Regional Court on Tuesday

Sredojevic was accused of sexually assaulting a 39-year-old woman during the 2020 COSAFA Cup tournament which was held in the Eastern Cape.

At the time, Sredojevic was the head coach of the Zambian senior national team – and this was a year after he had left Pirates for Zamalek.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the sexual assault happened at Wolfson Stadium when the woman delivered coffee to Sredojevic and his colleagues.

According to the South-African, it is alleged that when the woman delivered coffee to Sredojevic and others who were watching the match from the stands, she asked the coach if he wanted sugar with his coffee but to her surprise, Micho allegedly said that he needed another type of sugar while allegedly pointing at the woman’s private parts.

The said woman then laid a complaint to her boss who, in turn, reprimanded Sredojevic and warned him not to do it again.

However, Sredojevic allegedly went further later that day, touching the same woman inappropriately and that’s when the case of sexual assault was opened against the now Uganda head coach.

Sredojevic was arrested and released on R10 000 [Shs 2.5m] bail.

Sredojevic had been in and out of the court, and on Tuesday, he was found guilty and subsequently slapped with a suspended five-year sentence.

This, therefore, means that Sredojevic should NOT be found guilty of a similar offense in the next five years, and should this be the case, he will be arrested with immediate effect.
