File: IFP flag and supporters
DURBAN - The IFP wants Zandile Gumede out of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature.
The party filed court papers challenging her re-appointment as an ANC MPL on Wednesday.
It said the decision was irrational.
In a statement, the party said, "this matter goes beyond the Zandile Gumede-saga. The ANC must be sent a clear message that the country can no longer tolerate the ANC's business-as-usual approach when it comes to placing corrupt individuals at the helm of key institutions."
The former eThekwini mayor was sworn in in August but was later put on a leave of absence after a huge public outcry.
Gumede was fired from her mayoral position in 2019 after she was charged with corruption, fraud and racketeering.
