Johannesburg - The trial of Duduzane Zuma, the son of former president Jacob Zuma, was on Wednesday postponed due to a problem with the court recording machines.
State prosecutor Yusuf Baba said the evidence had to be cut short due to a problem with the recorder: "The magistrate orders proceedings be postponed until 08:30 on Thursday."
Zuma was initially charged with two counts of culpable homicide after a 2014 car accident that resulted in the deaths of Phumzile Dube and Nanki Jeanette Mashaba.
Dube died after Zuma’s Porsche crashed into a minibus taxi on the M1 in Johannesburg. Mashaba died in hospital. However, the court withdrew one of the charges after it was found that Mashaba had another pre-existing medical condition.
In March, the court rejected Zuma's application to have the culpable homicide case against him discharged
