eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede has withdrawn her resignation on Wednesday.
Gumede initially handed in her resignation on Monday.
The ANC replaced Gumede this month after she’d fought to hold on to her job.
The embattled mayor and her eThekwini executive were redeployed and had until Monday to resign.
The withdrawal of her resignation will see a delay in the swearing-in of her proposed successor, Mxolisi Kaunda.
Gumede is facing fraud and corruption charges relating to an R208-million waste tender.
She is out on R50,000 bail and is due back in court in January next year.
KwaZulu-Natal ANC spokesperson Ricardo Mthembu said the provincial offices have not confirmed that they have received a withdrawal of resignation.
Mthembu said the municipal swearing-in process has been slightly delayed by technical issues but is still on track.
