Former eThekwini mayor and corruption accused Zandile Gumede is open to taking donations for her criminal trial fees.
This was according to her spokesperson, Siphelele Jiyana, who was speaking to News24 outside the KwaZulu-Natal Division of the High Court in Durban.
Gumede on Monday appeared for the first time since a jarring emotional breakdown in open court last week, where she burst into tears.
