For the record
Last week City Press reported that President Jacob Zuma had addressed a gala dinner at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, in which he warned that the ANC ran the risk of losing the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality if it did not reconnect with people on the ground.
We have subsequently discovered that while the essence of his comments were correctly captured, they were not made at the dinner but during a separate engagement with the ANC leadership.
The president had several meetings on the day in the area, but no dinner.
City Press independently sourced the story from several senior ANC and government leaders who were present at the meeting.
Similar comments by the president reported by City Press were reported in other media.
City Press apologises for the error.
