Duduzane Zuma is set to learn what the future holds for him in the Randburg magistrate’s court on Friday.
The son of the former South African president is facing culpable homicide and reckless and negligent driving charges after crashing into a taxi.
30-year-old Phumzile Dube was killed in the accident, on that night on Grayston Drive in Sandton, when former president Jacob Zuma’s son crashed into a taxi.
Johannesburg metro police spokesperson, Wayne Minnaar says that both the drivers were not given a breathalyser test because they did not show any signs of being drunk.
“The officer did come to the conclusion that both drivers were sober. A breathalyser test only gets administered to confirm an officer’s suspicion, before a blood sample gets drawn which then gets analysed,” he said.
Zuma’s lawyers argued the state had failed to prove its case while the state insists Zuma was driving over the speed limit and has urged the judge to find him guilty.
Zuma pleaded not guilty to the charges he is being accused of.
