Former African National Congress (ANC) President Jacob Zuma has just shared with his followers on Twitter about the eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede’s corruption charges. Zuma says he hopes the charges against ANC eThekwini region chair are not politically motivated.

He went as far as saying he hopes the state has enough evidence to substantiate charges against Gumede. This after Gumede handed herself over to authorities last week in connection with a R200 million solid waste tender.

She also appeared in the Durban’s Commercial Crimes Court where she was released on a R50 000 bail. Zuma says he will also show Gumede support as she had also supported him
