Durban - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal said on Tuesday morning that it expected eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede to clear her name using legal channels.
Gumede was at the Durban Commercial Crime Court before 8 am, where she would be appearing alongside three others in relation to tender fraud within the Durban Solid Waste (DSW) department.
She is expected to formally appear at 9 am.
“I have not formally been informed about comrade Zandile appearing in court today, except through media reports,” ANC KZN secretary Mdumiseni Ntuli told African News Agency (ANA) on Tuesday morning.
“However, the ANC respects our judiciary system and expects any of our people accused of anything to follow the available avenues to clear themselves,” said Ntuli.
