The eThekwini municipality has rubbished the authenticity of a series of WhatsApp messages allegedly involving the mayor discussing ways to remove the city manager.

The messages, which have gone viral, purport to be between embattled Durban mayor Zandile Gumede and some members of the controversial Delangokubona Business Forum in which they chat about ways to remove city manager Sipho Nzuza.
