All officials requested to resign did so willingly, says ANC KZN

The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal announced Mxolisi Kaunda as the new mayor of eThekwini Metropolitan with Belinda Scott as his deputy.

This follows former mayor Zandile Gumede being placed on special leave for a number of months, as she faced fraud and corruption charges relating to a dodgy tender worth R208m in the Durban Solid Waste Department.

The party has since confirmed Gumede's resignation.
