Duduzane Zuma inquest postponed
The state and defence teams asked for a postponement to prepare for closing arguments.
JOHANNESBURG - Final arguments in the Duduzane Zuma car crash inquest has been postponed by a week to give council time to prepare for closing arguments.
The president's son hit a minibus taxi with his Porsche in February.
The accident killed one woman and left two others seriously injured.
The inquest is to determine if anyone is to blame for the crash.
The defence and the state both asked the courts to grant them more time as they prepare their closing arguments.
Phumzile Dube was killed when the Zuma's Porsche hit the rear of the minibus taxi.
While Zuma has blamed the accident on slippery roads and rainy weather, the state says he was speeding and lost control of his vehicle.
The accident happened on the N1 South at Grayston Drive.
An e-toll gantry on the N1 north near Rivonia Road is likely to be used to determine whether he was following the speed limit on the night of the crash.
Zuma met the family of the deceased for the first time last week, expressing his condolences and offering to assist them in whatever way they need.
