SAFA: Jordaan Rape Allegations, Nothing Changes

SAFA: Jordaan Rape Allegations, Nothing Changes

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 25, 2018 12:42 PM

The South African Football Association has reaffirmed their stance on the rape allegations against Danny Jordaan, the current SAFA president.

Jennifer Ferguson, a musician and a former MP, has decided to lay a charge against the SAFA president.
 
The rape allegations were made public back in October of 2017 by Ferguson, who  accused a high-ranking football official of allegedly raping her in the 1990s.
 
Ferguson announced her decision to lay a charge against Jordaan via Facebook on Sunday morning.
 
"After many months of deep consideration‚ consultation and attempts to mediate according to principles of restorative justice as embodied by the Truth and Reconciliation process South Africa has followed.
 
"I do this in the hope that other victims of sexual abuse will be empowered to speak out and act. I do this and ask for your support prayerful‚ in thought or action for all those affected by his sexual misconduct. I also am aware of the distress his family must be experiencing and express my sadness that they are inevitably affected. #wetoo," Ferguson said.
 
SAFA, however, remain firm on their stance regarding these allegations against Jordaan.
 
SAFA Communications Manager, Dominic Chimhavi, stated, “From SAFA, nothing changes. We prescribe to the notion of innocent until proven guilty. We have discussed this in the past and the stance remains the same ."

Ms Ferguson I wish you luck on this one 20 seconds of trauma has been kept secret for 28 years but why did you not act quicker than now Madam, I can understand the trauma you went through but to so quiet about it , unless you were promised compensation for the service and the guy does not want to pay. Sensitive matter like this cannot be left like this it has to be taken serious

I cant wait for SAFA to have a new boss. This man has failed to lead SAFA and I don't see why we should continue with a formula that is not working

I some how find this interesting as to why the lady kept quiet for so long and decide to talk now? but I'm not a lawyer as a responsible citizen i don't support violence more especially against women I'll give the lady a benefit of the doubt but all will be proven in the court of law according to the Constitution section 33 also talks about matters of this nature but i fully support women who stand up against the perpetrators, just ask your self mate " if it could happen to my sister " women are fragile they can bottle up problems for so long so will see how this pens out.

@Voltaire and according to this woman, her doctor advised her to lay a charge as soon as after this incident but she didn't. Tell me who can prove that really happened? Is the hotel mentioned even still have the record books of almost 39years ago? Does the doctor she consulted after the incident still alive? Or are they still kept the record books? Surely cameras were not so popular in that time so this is going to be a very finding by the investigators

@setlaboswana to make things more difficult for the victim is the fact that her only witnesses are her friends she told after the incident, so lawyers are braced to get rich in this case. Both the defendant and the complainant side money will be thrown I can tell you

@Bucsfever16, Danny 's quite diplomacy didn't help his course when the allegations first surfaced, a section of the media have already labelled him a rapist. I am also aware that a number of gender activists are fully behind the victim. Should the matter goes to Court, one of the two or both will regret for the rest of his/her life. In this kind of cases, lawyers will strip you naked, it is traumatising and emotionally draining mate.

@dr ss zondi, yeah, that is what Danny 's lawyers have said their client is looking forward to "to clear his name once the matter has been reported to the authorities".
