Durban - Former eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede will on Wednesday morning return to the Durban commercial crimes court to face the music over alleged corruption charges.
However, Gumede will return to the court uncertain of what will happen to the case which was postponed in August last year to allow the Hawks to conclude its investigation.
Gumede, who is out on R50 000 bail, told Independent Media on Tuesday that the last time she spoke to her legal team, they told her that they will get to know about the National Prosecution Authority’s (NPA) next move when they get to court.
“When I spoke to my lawyers this morning (Tuesday), they told me that they have no clue of how the case will proceed because the prosecution team refused to tell them what is their next move. We will go to court and know from there what their next move is. For now, we are in the dark,” Gumede said, adding that the NPA was yet to serve with specific counts of her case.
Gumede said she will “definitely” address her supporters after the court appearance. “That is given. I will address them immediately after the court appearance,” she said in Zulu.
