‘I will learn from my mistakes,’ says Khune

2014-01-29 00:00

“I’M very sorry. I made a mistake and I’ll learn from it,” Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune said outside court yesterday as he appeared for speeding.

He was stopped allegedly doing 173 km/h in a 120 km/h zone on the N1 in Centurion last Friday night.

Before the hearing at the Centurion traffic court, Khune avoided the media by remaining in his black BMW in the parking lot.

The case was postponed until March 6.

Afterwards, he said: “I respect my position as a role model, especially for young children, and will make sure I learn from my mistakes.”

Quoting former president Nelson Mandela, he said, reading from a statement: “people should judge me not by my successes, but on how often I fall and stand up again”.

Afterwards, he was mobbed by bystanders and court staff asking for autographs and photos.
