Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Duduzane handed himself over to authorities at the Johannesburg Central Police Station earlier on Monday morning.

Duduzane's lawyer Rudi Krause said he had agreed to surrender his passport to authorities as part of his bail agreement.

According to a report by TimesLIVE, the state found that Duduzane acted with the purpose to bribe Minister Mcebisi Jonas, former Deputy Finance in 2015.

The case has been postponed to 2019 so other people involved in the case could be charged as well. Duduzane's lawyers were unhappy, claiming the case should be ready as it is more than two years old.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Advocate Dawie Joubert feels the case against Duduzane is very weak.

Duduzane is expected in the Randburg Magistrates Court on charges of culpable homicide on Thursday, 12 July.
