Court to visit Duduzane Zuma accident scene
The court has ordered all parties involved to visit the scene to get clarity on what happened.
JOHANNESBURG - An inspection of the accident scene where the vehicle of President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane Zuma, collided with a taxi in Sandton is expected to take place today.
Zuma's car slammed into a mini bus taxi on the M1 highway in February this year leaving one woman dead and two other people seriously injured.
The Randburg Magistrates Court is now hearing who, if anyone, should be charged.
Magistrate Lalita Chetty has ordered all parties to go to the scene of the accident in order to get a better understanding of the taxi driver and the police officer's version of events.
Yesterday, taxi driver Jabulani Dlamini came under pressure for inconsistencies in his testimony and also during cross examination.
Dlamini testified that he only saw Zuma' grey Porsche on impact, contradicting an earlier statement that he saw the president's son's vehicle move from the fast lane through to the slow lane.
David Marais, who is representing the family of the passenger who died in the accident, Phumzile Dube, pointed out the confusion in the photographs of the scene of the accident presented to the court.
All parties involved are expected to gather at the Grayston offramp on the M1 south in Sandton within the next few hours.
