ANC confirms Zandile Gumede removed as eThekewini mayor

The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has confirmed that Zandile Gumede has been removed as eThekwini mayor and will be redeployed.

The ANC's provincial secretary Mdumiseni Ntuli announced Gumede’s axing during a briefing earlier on Tuesday.

Gumede has been on extended special leave since her arrest in May on fraud and corruption charges related to a R208m waste-collection tender in 2016.

The executives of both the eThekwini and Msunduzi municipalities will also be redeployed.

We decided that in instances where there were massive failures, especially in the two big cities we have in the province, decisive steps must be taken.

Mdumiseni Ntuli, Provincial spokesperson - ANC KZN

It is important that we must have a new team of comrades who are going to take the responsibility to take the municipalities forward.

Mdumiseni Ntuli, Provincial spokesperson - ANC KZN

We are reassigning the to other responsibilities.
