Opposition parties in Durban are outraged that one of the eThekwini Municipality officials charged alongside former mayor Zandile Gumede in connection with alleged fraud and corruption has been transferred.

Robert Abbu, one of those implicated in the 208-million-Rands waste removal tenders scandal has been moved to the electricity department.

Municipal spokesperson Msawakhe Mayisela says the transfer decision was motivated by Abbu’s bail conditions.
