"If you check the report by The Capital who has been on the case for a while very well, you will see that it was a mere speculation, no proof other than speculation. How do you determine the father of a child on mere speculation? What investigation was done? I won’t comment on mere speculation or dignify a mere speculation, it is not worth it’ he told NewsontheblogPressed further to give a categorical ‘yes’ or 'no' answer, Belo said he won’t dignify speculation with an emphatic ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
