In what is probably a world first, two members of the Ghost Riders Motorcycle Club Limpopo and Ysterberg (in Mokopane) are taking their organisation and its national president to court. They say they are fed up with national president Albert Janse van Vuuren.
They have been ousted from the club and want to be reinstated. The former presidents of these two regions said they could not wait to launch the matter through the ordinary court roll as the “Biker Brotherhood” was hosting a bash this weekend. If their clubs are dissolved, they will not be able to co-host this event.
Yster van Eeden, an advocate and until recently the regional president of Ghost Riders Limpopo, will ask the high court sitting in Polokwane on Tuesday to reverse the decision by Janse van Vuuren to take away their “cuts” - the leather jacket and club patch on the back of the leathers - and thus their status as presidents of their regions.
