The culpable homicide case against former president Jacob Zuma’s son resumed at the Randburg Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The culpable homicide case against former president Jacob Zuma’s son, Duduzane, resumed at the Randburg Magistrates court on Thursday where questions have been raised over discrepancies in his statements over the speed he had been travelling at.

He faces one count of culpable homicide in connection with a car crash back in 2014 in Sandton.

He is accused of negligently causing the death of Phumzile Dube.

Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane was in court. She says the state prosecutor in the case was critical of evidence brought forward in relation to the speed at which Zuma was driving.

Yesterday when he started his evidence and concluded it today, he did indicate that as far as he estimated, he thought he was driving around 90km/h to 100km/h when the crash actually occurred.

When he was cross-examined again today, the state prosecutor presented a statement that Duduzane presented to the inquest that was held before the trial. He said at the time that he was driving at 70km/h.
