The ANC says it will take action against supporters of axed eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede who have taken to the streets and disrupted report back meetings from senior party leaders in defiance of the decision to remove her

Supporters of axed eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede who have taken to the streets and disrupted report back meetings from senior party leaders in defiance of the decision to remove her will face action.

“The ANC has been very concerned about some of the public statements and the behaviour that was displayed in the CBD and at the provincial office.

This follows a tumultuous week in which the PEC announced the firing of the entire executive committees of both the eThekwini and Msunduzi municipalities.

City Press has learnt that Gumede’s supporters are adamant that the PEC cannot appoint a new mayor without consulting the ANC national executive committee (NEC).

Ntuli said that the PEC did not need to consult the NEC but rather needed to “report to it” on the decision taken regarding the metro mayor, which it would do.

“It is not a question of whether this is a man or woman, but rather who, in the light of the challenges in the city, is available and will be able to take us forward.” Gumede would not be given any preferential treatment in terms of a new deployment amid rumours that she might be moved to the provincial legislature.

Ntuli dismissed the claims that he was creating the conditions for his preferred candidate to unseat Gumede.
