Duduzani Zuma

Former President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzani initially faced two counts culpable homicide for a deadly 2014 car crash.

The National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) confirmed on Tuesday that one of the charges of culpable homicide against former president Jacob Zuma, Duduzani has been dropped.

Initially, Zuma was charged with two counts of culpable homicide for causing the deaths of Nanki Mashaba and Phumzile Dube in a 2014 deadly car crash.

His car rammed into a minibus taxi causing their deaths. Dube died on the scene of the crash while Mashaba died several weeks later in hospital.

EWN reporter Barry Bateman talks to Thembekile Mrototo about the court case.

It has been put on record by the state that following their investigation they found that Nanki Mashaba had an underlying medical condition.

From a criminal law perspective, it is a matter of what is called causation and the state would have had to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the accident caused by the accused is directly linked to the death of the victim.

Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN

Judging what happened today, we understand that the state didn't have the evidence to prove this.
