Where is your denial Danny Jordaan? - Stephen Grootes
Last week, singer and former ANC MP Jennifer Ferguson published a personal blog with claims that she was raped by current South African Football Association (Safa) boss Danny Jordaan in 1993.
She relayed how she was invited to sing at a dinner hosted by leading South African sports bodies and officials at a hotel in Port Elizabeth when the incident occurred.
On Saturday, Jordaan told Times Live that he will respond but would not do so immediately.
Ferguson has since reached out to him, offering a mediation process.
Stephen Grootes asks why Jordaan, Safa and the African National Congress have remained silent on the matter.
