Durban - The ANC Women’s League in eThekwini Region is fully behind a group of party members who are taking the ANC to court demanding the reinstatement of mayor Zandile Gumede, said regional secretary Zama Sokhabase.
But Sokhabase said the league was not part of the court action.
The group had announced this week that it had consulted lawyers to draft court papers in which the ANC provincial and national executive committees would be respondents.
“If I can wake up one day and see grannies dancing in front of that office (ANC provincial office in Durban) saying they want mama Zandile back, I will be supporting those people, and yes we support them,” said Sokhabase.
Since Gumede was placed on 30-day leave early last month, which was later extended by another 30 days, the league had been participating in protest marches to demand her reinstatement.
