Apology to Jordaan

WE CARRIED an article under the heading "Safa election dogfight continues" on September 14 2009, which might have created the impression that Danny Jordaan is a member of the Congress of the People.

WE CARRIED an article under the heading "Safa election dogfight continues" on September 14 2009, which might have created the impression that Danny Jordaan is a member of the Congress of the People.

It was meant to be a light-hearted story, based on the two factions contesting the Safa national executive committee elections on September 26.

In local soccer circles, it is common knowledge that there are two factions vying for various positions named after two popular political parties. Jordaan is a devoted ANC member and his bid to become Safa president has nothing to do with party politics.

We apologise to Jordaan as the article might have been interpreted as suggesting that he is a member of Cope. - Sowetan
