The woman who accused former Orlando Pirates coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic of sexual assault after he allegedly exposed himself to her is incensed after the charges were dropped.

The incident allegedly happened at the Protea Hotel Wanderers in Illovo, Johannesburg, in August last year, where the victim worked as a cleaner.
