We sincerely regret the error- Sunday paper

The Sunday Independent has apologised for a story it carried last week about President Jacob Zuma's court papers relating to the sacking of former police commissioner Bheki Cele.

"We reported that Zuma was blocking Cele's return to work through the responding affidavit. The Sunday Independent has established that the president's court papers are not new," it said in Sunday's edition.

"We sincerely regret the error and confusion created by our report last week and apologise to the president and to Cele."

Last week, the newspaper reported that Zuma had defended his decision to fire Cele in court papers filed on his behalf.
