Last Thursday Sowetan published an article quoting Cape Town head of security Jean-Pierre Smith as saying Premier Helen Zille would not have sex with members of her all-male cabinet "because of her lack of sexual appeal".

Last Thursday Sowetan published an article quoting Cape Town head of security Jean-Pierre Smith as saying Premier Helen Zille would not have sex with members of her all-male cabinet "because of her lack of sexual appeal".

Smith actually said she would not do so because the all-male cabinet "lacked sex appeal". His words were: "They do not look like sex toys."

Sowetan apologises for any inconvenience this slip-up might have caused the premier.
