ANC to take action against Gumede marchers

JOHANNESBURG - The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal is promising to take action against members who participated in protests on Thursday.

Supporters of embattled eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede clashed with police as they marched to demand that she be allowed to return to work.

Gumede has been placed on indefinite special leave, while the ANC decides her future.

The eThekwini mayor says she is waiting for her leaders to give her instructions.

“I’m waiting for my leaders to let me know when I shall resume my duties. It’s important, as we are led by the ANC, to adhere to what it says because at the end of the day we are deployed by the movement. I wish to apologise to those who were awaiting my return after my 30-day leave lapsed, but it didn’t happen," Gumede said.

“All I’m seeing through television is that the movement is still busy with its internal investigation, which I think and hope they will finalise soon and take a proper decision,” she said.

Gumede is charged with fraud and corruption and is out on bail.
