Duduzane Zuma set to be first hauled before Gerrie Nel’s private prosecuting unit

President Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane Zuma will be the first person to be hauled before AfriForum’s private prosecuting unit, the union announced on Tuesday.

Former NPA prosecutor, Nel who joined the union this year confirmed that papers have been filed to pursue a culpable homicide case against Duduzane.

Nel said the victim Phumzile Dube was killed died in February 2014, after Zuma’s Porsche collided with the taxi in which she was travelling.

An inquest found that Duduzane was negligent but the NPA declined to prosecute.

The family had received only R5 000 from the taxi association, and no other compensation.


“The has been no support and no financial compensation for the family whatsoever,” Nel said

Nel said they wanted to make sure everyone is equal before the law. He said he is very proud of the family to allow justice to be served.

“For us it’s equally before the law, there is no selective prosecutions.”

Kallie Kriel from Afriforum said: ”Nobody is above the law and not even if your surname is Zuma, or if your father is the president of the country.” – News24
