Mayor Zandile Gumede under pressure to resign

Very serious  pressure is mounting for the female politician and mayor Zandile Gumede who was arrested  and granted bail over issues of corruption.

The ANC Youth League in eThekwini has called on Mayor Zandile Gumede to resign in order to defend herself against criminal charges.

Meanwhile, the main branch of the party says it won’t take any rash decisions against her.

Gumede’s out on R50,000 bail, with strict conditions, after her arrest for tender fraud estimated at R208-million.

According to the Hawks’ Hangwani Mulaudzi rushing the cases will compromise everything.

“For us to rush cases just for the sake of rushing them, it will just compromise everything. We are just dealing with the cases as they come.”

The State alleges the mayor influenced processes to ensure certain service providers were selected.

Gumede and 11 other people implicated in this case are due back in court on the 8th of August.
