JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma&39;s son Duduzane was negligent in an accident in which a woman was killed, an inquest into the accident found on Thursday.

"He failed to conduct himself in a reasonable manner under the circumstances," Randburg Magistrate&39;s Court Magistrate Lolita Chetty said.

On February 1 this year, Duduzane Zuma&39;s car rear-ended Jabulani Vusi Dlamini&39;s minibus taxi on the M1 South off-ramp to Grayston Drive in Sandton. Passenger Phumzile Dube was killed and three others were injured.

During the inquest, Zuma said he lost control of his Porsche after it hit a puddle in rainy conditions.

In July, the National Prosecuting Authority said it declined to prosecute Zuma due to insufficient evidence.

Last month, the State and defence presented closing arguments and Chetty took two weeks do examine the documentation handed in by the legal teams.
