Duduzane Zuma: I was driving within speed limit
An inquest is being held following a deadly road collision in which Zuma was involved.
JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane, has told the Randburg Magistrates Court in Johannesburg he was driving within the speed limit at the time of a fatal accident in February.
But the state is to ask the e-tolling system to test the validity of his claims.
An inquest is being held following a deadly road collision in Johannesburg in which Zuma was involved.
A woman died and three others were injured when Zuma's Porsche crashed into the back of a taxi on Grayston Drive in Sandton.
Four cameras and a gantry on the N1 north near the Rivonia off-ramp are now going to be used to determine the speed at which Zuma and taxi driver, Jabulani Dlamini, were traveling at on the night Phumzile Dube was killed.
Zuma crashed his Porsche into the back of Dlamini's taxi on Grayston Drive.
He told the court he was traveling between 90-120km/h, which is within the speed limit.
The president's son has told the court the visibility was bad on that night because it was raining and that he lost control of his vehicle after hitting a puddle.
Accident recreation experts are expected to spend the next 24 hours piecing together both Zuma and Dlamini's account of the fatal crash.
Earlier this year, the National Prosecuting Authority declined to prosecute Zuma due to insufficient evidence and instead opened the inquest to determine whether the accident was caused by human error.
