Another false accusation, to keep from getting in trouble with the family.
Bangu Balayi admitted to lying about being raped. Why did she lie? Because she was afraid that her mother would be angry that she spent the night with him and overslept.
This is the same man that is the father to her baby, and that she has had a relationship with for close to two years.
He was, of course, suspended from his job. One also wonders what type of suspicion and hostility was directed at him from the community?
