AfriForum brings criminal charges against Hibiscus Coast Municipality Councillor – AfriForum

AfriForum will bring formal charges against Mr. Phumlani Rodney Gumbi, the ANC Councillor for Ward 28 in the Hibiscus Coast Municipality, after he verbally assaulted and threatened Mr. Fred Lauterbach, a farmer in Margate, and an Ugu District Municipality official earlier this morning.

“Mr. Lauterbach and the municipal official both confirmed to me that Councillor Gumbi verbally assaulted and threatened them, when they went to inspect the Ugu Municipality’s water meter that was installed on Mr. Lauterbach property without his permission,” said Chris Fourie, Community Co-ordinator for AfriForum in KwaZulu-Natal.”
