Former Ethekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede who is facing court cases on among other corruption charges influencing the awarding of the contracts, is facing yet another push back from the opposition party who are calling for her removal.
Her fraud and corruption case is set to include wasteful expenditure amounting to R400 million waste management tender.
She was released on R 50 000.00 after making a brief appearance before the Durban Specials Crime’s Court.
Her case was postponed to early December pending further investigations.
She has been on paid leave since being sworn in at the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) legislature in August despite corruption charges on her neck.
The IFP leader Velenkosini Hlabisa says it is unfair to the taxpayers that Gumede would receive salary by just sitting home not doing anything to contribute towards building the state.
The party demands that she be removed as the KZN member of the legislature.
They said they have also finalized papers to the High Court, calling for former eThekwini Mayor Gumede’s appointment to the KZN legislature to be set aside.
