JOHANNESBURG - Afriforum's private prosecution unit is going after President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane.

Advocate Gerrie Nel is leading the team hoping to secure a culpable homicide conviction.

The case relates to a car crash in 2014 when Zuma crashed his car into a taxi, killing a passenger, Phumzile Dube.

According to Nel, AfriForum's head of prosecutions, "We think there should be a prosecution and therefore we assisted the Dube family to apply for a certificate and it's now over to the NPA to decide if they would issue such a certificate and when and they also have the option to reconsider their decision and prosecute themselves.

 

 

"The family will get a certificate and  get somebody to prosecute on their behalf. Because to get a certificate, you have to show a particular interest in a matter, but her family will qualify in my view, and they will get a certificate and request us to prosecute on their behalf."
