Randburg - The trial of Duduzane Zuma kicked off with a twist on Tuesday as the State withdrew one culpable homicide charge against the son of former president Jacob Zuma.
According to reports, the charge withdrawn relates to the death of
Nanke Mashaba, who
died weeks later in hospital following an accident involving Zuma's Porsche.
In his defence, Zuma has previously maintained that he was not negligent as his car had lost control as it had driven into a puddle that resulted in it swerving and hitting the taxi.
An inquest ruled on by Magistrate Lalitha Chetty found that Zuma was negligent and that his actions led to the death of Dube.
