Contradictions emerge in Duduzane Zuma case
All 3 witnesses claim it was Zuma who lost control of his Porsche on the night of the fatal accident.
JOHANNESBURG - The inquest into a fatal car crash involving President Jacob Zuma's son and a minibus has heard submissions aimed at discrediting the testimony of an accident reconstruction expert.
Final arguments began in the Duduzane Zuma inquest this morning.
A female taxi passenger died in the February accident, while three other people were injured.
Zuma claims it was raining on the night Phumzile Dube was killed, visibility was poor and he lost control of his Porsche after hitting a puddle.
Taxi driver Jabulani Dlamini's lawyer, Sabelo Nobangule, scrutinised the testimony of expert Johannes Strydom.
He said the testimony of the eyewitnesses should weigh far greater than that of the accident reconstruction expert.
Nobangule said Strydom gave long-winded and inaccurate answers.
All three eyewitnesses have claimed it was Zuma who lost control of his Porsche on the night of the fatal accident.
While the state is accusing him of speeding, he maintains that he lost control of his vehicle because of the slippery road.
