State withdraws one culpable homicide charge against Duduzani Zuma
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.
