Earlier on Tuesday, the ANC in the eThekwini region in KwaZulu-Natal called on the public not to cast aspersions on the arrest of Gumede.
"We subscribe to the principle of innocence until proven otherwise, which is a tenant of our jurisprudence. We are a strong believer in the rule of law and the principles of natural justice," said ANC regional secretary Bheki Ntuli.
"However, we know that the court of public opinion doesn’t subscribe to these principles. We therefore urge everyone to respect the court as the only competent body to pronounce on these outcomes.
Speaking outside court, Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the unit was still investing other cases in the eThekwini municipality and other provinces.
"We are not only looking at this case, there are other matters that we are still dealing with. There are a lot of investigations that are still going to happen within eThekwini," said Mulaudzi.
