Safa announce support of Danny Jordaan in rape claim

JOHANNESBURG, March 29  – The SA Football Association (Safa) on Thursday announced that the National Executive Committee will support their president Danny Jordaan in the rape allegations laid against him.

Charges have been laid against Jordaan by former African National Congress (ANC) member of parliament Jennifer Ferguson.

In October 2017 Ferguson, who is a singer and now lives in Sweden, claimed that the sports boss raped her at a beachfront hotel in Nelson Mandela Bay after a function where she performed in 1993.

Safa said in a press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday, Jordaan was innocent until proven guilty.
