“We have decided to postpone to allow the disputes to go through. We thought we would finish them by today [Tuesday], but there are branches that have to rerun, about four of them, so we will let them run and allow for appeals next week, then on the 27th we sit.”
Morero, who is also contending for the regional chair position, said the postponement was not linked to Moerane’s car accident.
“It’s not in relation to the hospitalisation of Mpho, because I think even if Mpho was not hospitalised we would still postpone because there are disputes.”
Moerane and Morero are expected to go head-to-head at the regional conference. The former friends allegedly had a fallout six months ago over the mayorship of the City of Johannesburg after the local government elections.
