eThekwini Mayoral Post Doesn'tšŸ‘€ Belong to Zandile Gumede, but to the ANC:šŸ”Š Youth League

  |   Sanews

The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in the eThekwini region said the position of mayor did not belong to any specific person, including embattled Zandile Gumede.

Rather, it belonged to the governing party in the metro - the ANC - the youth league's regional spokesperson, Thulisa Ndlela, said on Monday.

"When you are a mayor or a premier, you occupy public office for the ANC. That privilege may be taken away from you. Zandile is not being taken away from her position. It is not hers to begin with. It never was. It does not belong to any one person, it belongs to the ANC."

The provincial executive committee (PEC) asked Gumede to vacate office and resolved to disband the regional executive committee and replace it with a task team. She is out on R50 000 bail after she was arrested for corruption relating to a R230m waste removal tender.

Ndlela said the ANCYL had not yet met the PEC to establish details of the move.

Ndlela pointed out that the province had taken a decision earlier this year for ANC members to step aside from public office during matters of distress.
