Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority has declined to prosecute President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane following an accident in which one person was killed, due to insufficient evidence.

Spokesman Nathi Mncube said on Thursday the matter would be referred to a magistrate for a formal inquest, to determine whether the accident was caused by a human error.

Zuma allegedly hit a minibus taxi in Rivonia, Johannesburg, while driving a Porsche in February, causing the taxi to overturn.

One person was killed and three people were injured. Metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said at the time that the Porsche rear-ended the taxi on the M1 south off-ramp at Grayston Drive.

According to IOL news at the time a 14-year-old was killed. The Sunday Times however reported that the victim was a woman, Phumzile Dube, 30.
