Durban - The ANC Women’s League said it was shocked at the rape allegations levelled against the former mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Metro and SA Football Association boss Danny Jordaan.
KwaZulu-Natal ANCWL spokesperson Nonhlanhla Msomi said it was surprised rape allegations against Jordaan had emerged 24 years later.
She said after the matter had been brought into the public domain, a court had the duty to test its veracity.
On the back of the international #MeToo campaign that emerged recently in which victims of sexual harassment spoke out, former ANC MP and singer Jennifer Ferguson made her rape allegations against Jordaan.
“It is also shocking that a person of Jordaan’s calibre could be linked to such allegations. But we believe in the justice system which pronounces that only a court of law could find a person guilty.”
