A set of potentially dubious emails and invoices between a travel agent and soccer boss Irvin Khoza is believed to be at the centre of the criminal complaints opened against him and singer Jennifer Ferguson by South African Football Association (SAFA) president Danny Jordaan.
In the latest twist in the increasingly messy saga, News24 has seen a PDF document titled “Invoices and Credit card auth” which purportedly shows an email exchange between travel agency Fli-Afrika and Khoza on April 8 this year.
This document allegedly proves that Khoza paid for flights and accommodation for Ferguson, a former ANC MP, who is accusing Jordaan of rape.
In March, Ferguson filed a rape complaint with police in Parkview, Johannesburg, against Jordaan. She accused the SAFA president of raping her in a Port Elizabeth hotel 25 years ago.
Ferguson currently lives in Sweden.
This week The Sunday Times reported that Jordaan, who has maintained his innocence, had opened a case of defamation, criminal collusion and conspiracy against Khoza and Ferguson.
The report said the case was opened because Jordaan believed Khoza had paid for Ferguson’s flights and accommodation through a third party. Jordaan refused to give details.
Ferguson said her flights had been paid for by an anonymous donor.
