Swazis have reacted to the the statement released this afternoon by Standard Bank where Smallz was serving as a brand influencer.
A woman accused the comedian of forcing himself on her flat in Mbabane. She laid charges at the police station and she’s now hoping for justice to prevail.
The bank released the statement on their social media page and announced that they have suspended all Standard Bank related duties and activities performed by the accused individual pending the outcome of formal investigation.
