The South African Communist Party (SACP) eThekwini branch is calling on the African National Congress (ANC) to fire suspended eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede and 62 other councillors linked to corruption within 14 working days.
Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to the party's eThekwini secretary Phumlani Mthembu.
The SACP has been saying all along that there are investigations that are being conducted by the city which implicated the mayor in a number of crimes. The SACP was ignored when it made those such calls.— Phumlani Mthembu, eThekwini secretary - SACP
He says the party tried to urge the ANC to recall the Gumede because she has been implicated in corruption, to no avail.
We are engaging with the ANC at the provincial level so that decisive action around this matter can be taken. This issue is paralysing the municipality. If they don't, the SACP will mobilise the community against the mayor.— Phumlani Mthembu, eThekwini secretary - SACP
