eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede, currently out on R50 000 bail, is set to be fired. According to insiders who attended a meeting alongside ANC’s KwaZulu-Natal provincial committee, Gumede was axed by party members who include the speaker and party chief whip.
eNCA reported that three independent and reliable sources confirmed with them, and who attended the two-day special PEC meeting in Durban. Gumede was arrested last month and faces fraud and corruption charges relating to a R208-million waste tender. She is set for her next appearance in court early next year.
