Zandile Gumede appointment as MPL reversed by ANC KZN


Zandile Gumede, former eThekwini major will have to step down from her position as KZN MPL.

This happened after ANC in KwaZulu-Natal decided to reverse its initial decision to appoint her to the province’s legislature.

On Friday, there was a meeting between provincial executive committee and Gumede following a public exclamation after ANC assigned Gumede to the legislature while she was still facing charges connected to fraud and corruption.

However, the ANC said:

This is in line with the ANC’s Nasrec resolution on dealing with corruption.”

A part in the resolution from Nasrec mentioned that the ANC should disassociate itself from anyone, be it –

  • business donor,
  • supporter or member, that is accused of corruption or reported to be involved in corruption

The disassociation must be made a public notice, according to Nasrec.
