Durban - Thousands of Inkatha Freedom Party Youth Brigade (IFPYB) members in the eThekwini District are marching against the Mayor Zandile Gumede in Durban on Friday.
The march departed from Botha’s Park heading to the Durban City Hall where the IFPYB will deliver a memorandum calling for the mayor to be suspended from all work in the city council due to the scathing charges she faces.
The IFPYB said that Gumede should not be involved in the day to day business of the mayoral office. It also said that she should not disrespect her court order which she has now allegedly violated in attending and delivering the Budget speech.
"We cannot have one person holding the whole City on ransom. She should shape out until such a time that she has cleared her name," IFPYB national chairperson, Mkhuleko Hlengwa said
Gumede is out on R50 000 bail for her alleged involvement in corruption and fraud. She handed herself over to police earlier this month and was charged with fraud, corruption and racketeering relating to a multi-million rand Durban Solid Waste tender from 2016 onwards.
