Khoza Slams Jordaan!
Irvin Khoza Has Hit Out At Danny Jordaan
PSL Chairman, Irvin Khoza, didn’t hold back yesterday as he hit out at Danny Jordaan, refusing to be his ‘scapegoat’ amid charges of rape against the SAFA President.
Jordaan stands accused of rape after former ANC MP, Jennifer Ferguson reportedly opened a case against him for an incident that took place 24 years ago, and has, in turn, accused Khoza as being behind the charge. He has since opened a case of defamation, criminal collusion and conspiracy against the Orlando Pirates boss.
As can be imagined, Khoza isn’t impressed by the claims, stating that he neither knows nor has been in contact with Ferguson at any point, adding that it is not the first time he has been targeted by Jordaan. He calls his claims ‘bizarre and absurd’.
Speaking to the media, Khoza said, “Common to these events, Dr Jordaan, the aggressor, is portrayed as a victim of the all-powerful Irvin Khoza. In 2004, allegations were made that Jordaan was shot at and I was a key suspect, and then there were allegations of a coup plan in 2009.
“I don’t own the zoo, so I cannot be responsible for the monkeys… Jordaan attacks people in public and apologises in private… This time I’m not going to lapse in my pursuit of truth and justice in this matter.”
Regarding the accusations of rape, Jordaan has maintained his innocence throughout.
