Mangaliso Ngema claimed that he didn't sexually assault his former colleague Lorraine Moropa and even decided to sue for defamation so he could clear his name.

Mzansi social media users were shocked by the news, and this led to Ngema resigning from his position. Moropa did not give up and wanted to fight for justice.
