South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has decided to prosecute Duduzane Zuma – the son of former president Jacob Zuma – for culpable homicide, local media reports. Duduzane Zuma’s Porsche hit the back of a minibus in Johannesburg in 2014, killing one woman instantly.
At an inquest that year, the ex-president’s son said he had lost control of his car after driving into a puddle. The inquest recommended he was prosecuted but the NPA said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him. In October 2017, AfriForum – a group that campaigns to protect the rights of white Afrikaners – said it would prosecute him privately. ENCA reports that it is now unclear what will happen to that prosecution.
