The wheels of justice have indeed been turning slowly, but we hope they will eventually turn on the many denialists boldly proclaiming: "It wasn’t me," writes Nolwandle Mthombeni.
Many will remember the year 2001 when musical artist Shaggy released his hit song It wasn't me. The song depicted a man caught cheating on his girlfriend who then asked his friend for advice on what to do. His friend told him to deny everything, and say it wasn't him, despite clear evidence to the contrary. The song was a huge commercial success, not only because of its catchy beats but also because everybody could relate to the denial of wrongdoing.
