JOHANNESBURG - Duduzane Zuma has sent his condolences to the family of a woman killed in a car crash in which he was involved.
In February the president's son's Porsche crashed into a mini bus taxi killing 27-year-old Phumzile Dube and injuring three others.
Zuma addressed the Dube family for the first time in the Randburg Magistrates Court this afternoon where an inquest into the Sandton crash is being held.
In what seemed to be an emotional meeting, Zuma offered his condolences to the mother and extended family of Dube.
Zuma was accompanied by the lawyer for the deceased as he met Dube's mother and family for the first time.
Exiting the courtroom where they met privately, the Dube family broke down.
Lawyer David Maree says, "The family accept his concern and they were very grateful for him to come and introduce himself."
Final arguments began in the Duduzane Zuma inquest this morning.
The inquest into a fatal car crash has heard submissions aimed at discrediting the testimony of an accident reconstruction expert.
The matter has been postponed to 17 November.
