The ANC has denied that the postponing of its regional electoral conference in Johannesburg is linked to former Johannesburg Mayor Mpho Moerane’s hospitalization.
On Monday, Moerane was engaged in an automobile accident.
He was set to run for chairperson of the ANC’s Jo’burg Regional Conference, according to reports.
Since then, the conference has been postponed till the end of May.
With 135 branches, Johannesburg is the ANC’s largest territory in Gauteng.
The conference has been postponed until later this month due to outstanding disagreements in 20 branches, nine of which will need to re-run branch general meetings, according to regional coordinator Dada Morero.
“Dates on whether the AGM was conducted in accordance with the criteria, and you discover that the majority of the dates are in breach of the guidelines.”
Moerane is in a critical but stable condition in hospital, according to Morero, who is also set to run for chairwoman.
He stated that the ANC will use the next two weeks to resolve all lingering issues in order to have a successful conference on May 27-29.
