In a tweet posted on Sunday night, Zuma said he hoped the corruption charges against Gumede were not politically motivated like his. Zuma said he would continue to support the mayor.
Gumede’s charges relate to a 2016 Durban solid waste removal tender, which reportedly cost the city over R200 million for services not rendered.
She is currently out on bail after appearing in court last week.
