DURBAN - The eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede has been released on R50 000 bail.
Gumede appeared in the Regional Commercial Crimes Court in Durban on Tuesday morning.
She faces corruption-related charges, including fraud and money laundering.
This comes after the arrest this month of two eThekweni Municipality managers, and a service provider, who were arrested in connection with the awarding of a rand waste tender to the value of R208-million.
Gumede is expected back at court in August.
