Former President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane Zuma now faces two counts of culpable homicide.
Duduzane has been summoned to appear in court next month. The former president's son collided with a taxi on the M1 highway in 2014 which led to the deaths of Phumzile Dube and Nanki Mashaba
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) had initially declined to prosecute Zuma, despite a court finding that there was sufficient evidence to suggest his negligent actions led to the deadly car crash.
These are normal processes where, as the NPA, we have a duty and an obligation to listen to complainants or any part affected by the decision taken by the NPA. It happens on a daily basis.— Phindi Louw, Regional Head Of Communications at NPA Johannesburg
Louw says they are hoping Zuma will show up for the court appearance.
We summoned him via his legal team and we are hoping that his legal team will be able to advise him that it's in his best interest to that he appears in court lest he be declared a fugitive of the law.— Phindi Louw, Regional Head Of Communications at NPA Johannesburg
