JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi has apologised for mistakenly spotting the old South African flag at the Springboks' semifinal victory.
Lesufi on Sunday posted a picture of Springboks supporters in Japan carrying what seemed to him like the old flag.
He captioned the picture as a spoiler.
Twitter users were quick to correct Lesufi and he's apologised.
Lesufi says his reaction was prompted by the trauma of apartheid.
