Danny Jordan

South African singer and ex-MP Jennifer Ferguson has accused the country’s football boss Danny Jordan, 66, of raping her nearly 24 years ago.

He “overpowered” her and “painfully” raped her in a hotel in Port Elizabeth city, she has alleged in a blog.

Mr Jordaan, who organised the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Now living in Sweden, Ms Ferguson said she had been moved by the #MeToo campaign on social media to speak out.

She said the attack took place when she was “high and happy” following her unexpected nomination by Nelson Mandela.
