"It has been a grueling and very hard campaign, and the job starts now in all earnestness," he said.

Moodey explained that the idea behind the shoes was that members should walk together towards 2019, adding that some shoes will be also be donated to charity. He blamed the chaos on "logistical" issues. "It was a sponsorship and we saw the logistical problems around it. Initially we had a different way of wanting to do it".Moodey, who beat Ghaleb Cachalia to remain on as leader, said the two would continue with their friendship.
