I’d have ignored such, akazondibetha esiqwini including her lawyers mos... and I wouldn’t even appear in any court if they sent summons, it’s a litigation not a criminal case. 🤐 Still think he should take it on trial.. He who allege must prove.. I mean what's the worse that can happen? If she didn't open a criminal case.. He won't go to jail.. He's looking at damages quantum claim.. That might even be 3k..😂😂
