JOHANNESBURG - ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu has released an apology for President Jacob Zuma's no-show for the party's door-to-door campaign in Soweto on Saturday.

President Jacob Zuma cancelled the campaign to suddenly return to his Nkandla home amid reports that his son Duduzane is being investigated for culpable homicide.

Duduzane Zuma was reportedly involved in an accident in Sandton last weekend involving his Porsche and a taxi.

One person was killed and two others were injured in the crash.

Metro police opened a case after an accident in which a 14-year-old was killed.

According to the police docket two other people were injured.

Reports say the Porsche was badly damaged after crashing at high speed.

No one has been arrested yet but the case is under investigation.

The director of public prosecution will decide whether anyone will be formally charged.

Police say statements from eyewitnesses will need to be collected.

In his statement however, Mthembu reassured the public the party's programme will continue on Sunday.
