Durban - The Democratic Alliance (DA) in eThekwini said on Monday that it was not convinced by the African National Congress' (ANC) answers on how supporters of embattled eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede acquired city buses that ferried them to and from a protest demanding her suspension be lifted.
Hundreds of supporters marched to the ANC provincial office on Tuesday last week, demanding that the decision to place her on a 30-days leave of absence be reversed with immediate effect.
The ANC in KZN requested Gumede to take the leave of absence after she was charged with fraud and corruption with regard to a R208 million Durban Solid Waste tender.
Her supporters, including a few ANC councillors, were dropped off by municipal buses at Durban’s North Beach where their march to the provincial office started.
Nicole Graham, the DA's eThekwini caucus leader, said the ANC has been using municipal buses to ferry people wherever they choose.
