South Africa former president Zuma’s son acquitted in culpable homicide homicide and reckless driving charges in the Randburg Magistrates Court, concluding the case that has spanned five years.
The case related to an incident in 2014 when Mr Zuma’s Porsche hit the back of a minibus in Johannesburg killing a woman, Phumzile Dube, instantly.
The magistrate found that the state failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the accused was guilty of negligence.
There is no evidence that the accused should have done anything more to avoid the accident, the magistrate said.
Duduzane Zuma, his father former President Jacob Zuma and other family members heaved sighs of relief when the magistrate pronounced he was not guilty of culpable homicide and the other charges.
