“The allegations that came out against me in 2017 have since resurfaced and have taken a toll on me… they have affected my family and sadly continue to affect the people in my personal and professional life,” his statement reads in part.

He adds, “I do not want my silence to be interpreted as guilt or complacency, yet I do not want to speak and have my words misrepresented, I have been tried at the court of public opinion and ruled guilty by persons with malicious intentions.”

Mutuma further stated that he is against any form of abuse against women thus the allegations should be used to tear down his career and everything he has built over the years.

“I would like to categorically state that I am against any form of abuse against women and I have always been.” He said.
