Legal bills, new ANC KZN ruling faction bring uncertainty to Zandile Gumede’s fraud trial

The Durban High Court will on Monday, 1 August hear if the long-awaited criminal trial of former eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede will finally start, or if the R320m fraud, corruption and racketeering matter will again be postponed because several of her co-accused are still unable to pay their legal representatives for the duration of the trial.
