Philani Godfrey Mavundla was elected as the deputy mayor of eThekwini on the 24th of November 2021.
At some point Mavundla was the ANC mayor in Umvoti, before defecting to the National Freedom Party and then founding the Abantu Batho Congress in 2020. However, before Mavundla became the mayor of Umvoti, which includes Greytown, he shot to fame as a generous former president Jacob Zuma's benefactor and fervent follower of Zuma.
Mavundla and the former president share a few things in common.
Not only is Mavundla a polygamist but his palatial homestead in Greytown - with multiple residences for each of his siblings and wives, and his own three-storey house - rivals Zuma's Nkandla compound.
His homestead in Matimatolo features five standard sized houses, two guest houses and his own three-storey house. His residence features 12 lounges, a gym and an underground garage which accommodates up to 12 cars. He has another mansion which boasts of 14 bedrooms and private cinema theatres.
