Gumede has since told Eyewitness News that she felt violated and harassed by law enforcement agencies after the raid.

The NPA unit obtained an order for her belongings to be placed under curatorship.

The former mayor and several of her co-accused face fraud and corruption charges relating to a dodgy tender worth R208m in the Durban Solid Waste Department.

Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show talks to EWN reporter Nkosikhona Duma and National Prosecutions Authority KwaZulu-Natal spokesperson Natasha Kara.

Zandile Gumede says she feels harassed and she didn't know anything about the raid and for the Hawks to come to her house early in the morning is a violation.

Gumede's spokesperson insists that the Hawks do not have serious charges against the former mayor however, the Hawks have refuted that statement, Duma explains.

Kara says she is still going to be briefed as to what was seized at the former mayor's residence.

We have a case before the court and the postponement is just to finalise investigations.
