Johannesburg - Duduzane Zuma’s defence lawyer on Wednesday brought an application to have the culpable homicide case against him discharged on the grounds that the State had failed to submit evidence that their client acted negligently when he crashed his car into a taxi.
Advocate Mike Hellens, the senior counsel representing former president Jacob Zuma's son, told the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday that the State has failed to prove that its case could lead to a guilty verdict.
"There is nothing which points to negligent driving on the part of Zuma, especially now when it said that the two cars were more or less driving at a similar speed," lawyer Mike Hellens told the Randburg Magistrate’s Court.
Hellens said the state has "nothing".
"The state does not have accident reconstruction evidence which would explain what could have happened that night," said Hellens.
