Since I started my service, I have represented my boss in court on many cases. All of these cases came with their challenges, that add to one’s experience in the profession.
I can’t just forget my experience in court yesterday, (Monday). It will continue to be a day of reference, drama and embarrassment.
I lied in court that my client was sick not knowing that the husband was in court. I did that just to give reason the woman could not make it to court. But lo and behold, my lie was exposed. The husband stood up in fury and announced to the court that his wife was not sick but at home. The magistrate was not happy with me. She asked if she. Could put me on record, I said yes. It was a kind of embarrassment to me.
