Fawzia Peer - eThekwini Acting Mayor Awaits Lab Results After Drinking ‘Poisoned’ Water

Lab results from allegedly poisoned water at an eThekwini council meeting are expected to be released on Monday.

Acting Mayor Fawzia Peer was rushed to hospital on Thursday after drinking water. She had complained about a burning sensation in her mouth and throat.

Peer said that the water smelled like paraffin.

“I don’t know the underlying cause or who tried to do something like that; but I’d say that no matter what, it will not deter me from using my leadership role here as the acting mayor. I’ll continue to serve the community.”

She has been acting mayor since Zandile Gumede was forced to take 30 days leave following her arrest on corruption charges.
