Jacob Zuma appears in court to support his son Duduzane
Former president Jacob Zuma was at the Randburg Magistrate Court to support his son Duduzane Zuma when he appeared on two counts of homicide.
The case relates to an accident that took place in February 2014, when Zuma crashed into a taxi after losing control of his Porsche on Grayston Drive, Johannesburg.
The case has been postponed to allow the defence to study the case files.
Senior specialist reporter and journalist with Tiso Black Star, Karyn Maughan says Duduzane stated that this is the first time his father has appeared in court to support a family member.
She says both Zuma and his son were in good spirits, friendly and greeting everyone.
Duduzane also told Maughan that if the Zondo Commission summons him to appear before it, he will do as required.
Former deputy finance minister will appear before the state capture commission and it is believed that his witness implicates Duduzane Zuma in acts of corruption.
