- In Wednesday's edition, we misquoted Sascoc acting CEO Ravi Govender as stating elections would be free and fair. This is incorrect, as pointed out by Govender. “I cannot promise free and fair elections as I have no control over the elections. I am only an administrator and am not facilitating the elections,” said Govender.

We apologise to Govender for the incorrect quote. - Sports Editor
