Gumede’s corruption trial has been postponed


Zandile Gumede, former eThekwini mayor thinks the ANC is suffering from an attack.

After her corruption case was postponed in three months time, she came out to speak with her supporters.

Gumede alongside her 16 co-accused (which included city manager – Sipho Nzuza) have been accused of being in connection to tender fraud which amounted to hundreds of millions.

Apparently, the investigation has been completed but due to the forensic audit, the State needs time to finalise it. The forensic audit report is said to be about 350,000 pages long.

However, if by the end of three months and the report is not ready then the defence will go on with the application to hold an inquiry into the delays.

Gumede’s had a lot of support outside the court.

We are at war and it’s not a war against Zandile but the war is attacking the African National Congress,” she said.

That’s why I’m saying the ANC members in Durban and other regions if they stand up, stand up against cases such as these ones, they will save the ANC.”

Gumede alongside her co-accused will be back to court by 10 December.
