JOHANNESBURG - Former President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane Zuma, appeared in the Randburg magistrate's court on Thursday.

The case has been postponed to 26 March.

He's facing two charges of culpable homicide and one count of negligent driving.

In February 2014, Zuma's Porsche collided with a taxi on the M1 highway after he lost control of his vehicle.

He was reportedly speeding in wet conditions, causing the deaths of Phumzile Dube and Nanki Mashaba.

The court is expected to discuss final trial dates.

In a separate matter, the state is expected to drop corruption charges against Zuma.

The NPA says charges are being withdrawn because former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas's evidence at the state capture inquiry hasn't yet been finalised.

Zuma was charged last year over an alleged R600-million bribe offer made to Jonas.
