Cape Town - Veteran sports journalist Dan Retief’s work will no longer be published by City Press.

Retief irked many South Africans earlier this month when took to social media after the

Proteas’ series-clinching ODI win over England at Newlands, tweeting:

“SA carried to victory by two White Afrikaners…politicians and media commentators take note….for what it is worth.”

Cricket South Africa (CSA) took strong exception to the tweet before accepting his apology.

Retief was heavily criticised on Twitter for his actions.

However, City Press has opted not to carry Retief’s articles in future.

City Press editor Ferial Haffajee commented: “Dan Retief is a journalist of skill and dexterity - he has taught me a lot about journalism and rugby. I have enjoyed his work in our pages and our readers have been enriched by his excellent insights into rugby.

“But his tweet last Sunday was intolerable to City Press, which is built on the principles of black and African excellence, and of anti-racism and non-racialism. His work will no longer be appearing in City Press.”
