Provincial spokesperson Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said the party’s provincial executive committee (PEC) would discuss the unruly protesters and decide on the action to be taken against them.
A number of eThekwini councillors were among hundreds of Gumede’s supporters who participated in the march on Tuesday that brought the Durban CBD to a standstill for much of the day.
Police had to prevent protesters from forcing open the doors of the Durban City Hall as they demanded that municipality staff and councillors stop working until Gumede’s 30-day suspension was lifted.
“The ANC takes a very dim view of its public representatives actively being involved in matters of sabotage, especially if you’re a councillor who marches and causes havoc against its own municipality. It’s very irresponsible for any public representative to be involved in such chaos,” said Simelane-Zulu.
