The ANC regional leader in eThekwini, Zandile Gumede, and her co-defendant are due to appear in Durban High Court on Monday.
The former mayor and her 17 co-defendants face a barrage of corruption and fraud allegations in the R320 million Durban Solid Waste case.
According to the Chief Justice, the pre-trial will take place on Monday as part of the preparations for the trial scheduled from July 18 to August 31.
A large media contingent gathered outside the courthouse awaiting Gumede’s arrival. However, none of Gumede’s supporters were in sight.
