A woman is receiving antiretroviral treatment after the Msunduzi mayor's bodyguard allegedly spat in her face during a confrontation on the N3 in KwaZulu-Natal, reports said yesterday.

Kathleen Drummond was allegedly harassed, forced to the side of the road and spat on twice.

The incident occurred on March 18 near the Umbumbulu off-ramp on the N3 and allegedly involves two bodyguards attached to mayor Zanele Hlatshwayo.

Drummond reportedly had to take ARVs on her doctor's instructions after the saliva of one of Hlatshwayo's bodyguards landed in her eye.

Drummond said she was driving towards Durban at around 5pm when a vehicle with a blue light flashed at her to move into the slow lane.

"After moving to the slow lane the driver of the black Golf cut in front and stopped in the emergency lane. Another vehicle flashing a blue light signalled me to pull over."

She said a man leaned towards her window and spat at her and his saliva landed in her eye. - Sapa
