AfriForum to prosecute Duduzane Zuma


Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma's son says he was deeply affected by the fatal car crash with a minibus taxi. The February accident left a young mother dead.

JOHANNESBURG – Civil rights group AfriForum's private prosecutions unit said President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane, will be the first case it pursues.

Advocate Gerrie Nel will be leading the team bringing a charge of culpable homicide against Zuma.

The case relates to an accident on Johannesburg's M1 motorway in 2014.

Zuma crashed his car into a minibus taxi, killing one passenger.

A second passenger died a few weeks later, but homicide was ruled out at the time.

The NPA declined to prosecute Duduzane Zuma in 2015, saying the evidence would not secure a conviction.

Zuma didn't immediately report the accident.
