Former African National Congress (ANC) MP, Jennifer Ferguson says she has made several attempts to engage soccer boss Danny Jordaan on rape allegations against him.

Ferguson laid a rape charge against Jordaan at the Parkview Police Station in Johannesburg over the weekend.

She first came forward in October 2017, accusing Jordaan of raping her in a hotel in Port Elizabeth, 24 years ago.

Ferguson says she has finally found the courage to lay criminal charges.

“There’s a huge battle ahead. It’s not easy because he is an extremely powerful man – not only nationally, but internationally. He has been given a very generous time period. I approached him and gave him an opportunity to come forward.”

“If he just called me, I could’ve met him in a civilised and respectful way on how we can take this bad thing that happened – and him in his leadership position and me as an artist – how can we make something good out of it,” adds Ferguson.
