Thousands of ANC members, who claim to represent the 110 ANC branches in the eThekwini region, have come out in support of the provincial leadership’s decision to recall eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede.
The KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Department says a support plan that will facilitate a smooth transition from the outgoing Exco to the incoming, in both the embattled eThekwini and the uMsunduzi municipalities, is currently in place.
Outgoing eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede says she’s determined to clear her name after being removed from the powerful post this week.
Supporters of the recalled eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede have accused the African National Congress (ANC) of persecuting her.
Political Analyst Zakhele Ndlovu has warned that the recall of the embattled eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede and the Msunduzi Municipal Mayor Themba Njilo is likely to further divide the African National Congress.
