Eisteddfod chairman apologises for 'savages' slur again
The chairman of the Eisteddfod's governing body has apologised for a second time after he referred to Ugandan people as "savages".
In a statement on Wednesday, Eifion Lloyd Jones said he apologised "fully".
The chairman of the Eisteddfod Court previously said people had "misunderstood" his comments during a ceremony at the Eisteddfod.
But after calls to stand down, Mr Jones said he is "against racism of any kind".
In a ceremony for the Welsh diaspora, Mr Jones said he was unclear whether the "worst savages" lived in Uganda, Rhyl or northern England.
Apologising for a second time on Wednesday, he said: "Last week's Eisteddfod was a celebration of inclusion, diversity and multi-culturalism, all those things are close to my heart.
"I apologise fully and unconditionally for the word I used in the Wales and the World ceremony, and I can reassure everyone that I am against racism of any kind."

Mr Jones previously said he thought calls for him to stand down were a "joke" and the comment was a "playful remark" while talking about the travels of the new president of the Wales and the World body, Iori Roberts.
Marc Phillips, a member of the Eisteddfod Court, said the comments were "worthy of the old British Empire".
Dylan Foster Evans, a member of the Eisteddfod Court, has resigned over the comments.
