ANC’s Zandile Gumede Given Go Ahead Back To Work

ANC Integrity Committee Zandile Gumede

South Africa, Durban – Former Durban mayor Zandile Gumede gets the go ahead to return to work at the KZN Legislature, where she represents the party as an MPL as instructed by KZN ANC’s Integrity Commission.

According to the African National Congress’s Integrity Commission, Gumede can return to party work as well as at the provincial legislature.

In an interview with eNCA, ANC KZN spokesperson, Nhlakanipho Ntombela, said Gumede appeared before the committee in October and the members welcomed her appearance as she was open during her engagement with them.

He said the committee also took into cognisance that Gumede’s fraud case has been going on for almost more than a year without any conclusion.

“Based on their engagement with her as the Integrity Committee, they are of the view that her membership of the ANC Regional Task Team in eThekwini and her membership of the Provincial Legislature be reinstated. This of course will be determined as we move forward by the court case and how it will proceed,” he said.

Gumede faces a raft of charges relating to a R430m Durban Solid Waste (DSW) tender.

She appeared in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court last week where the matter was postponed – yet again. Gumede will appear in court again in March next year.

Suspended city manager, Sipho Nzuza, his wife Bagcinele and senior ANC councillor Mondli Mthembu are also accused in the matter.

Meanwhile, Magistrate Dawn Somaroo warned that should the State fail to hand over a forensic report and all related information to the lawyers of the accused, that there would be an inquiry to get answers and one of the possible scenarios would be to strike the matter off the roll.
