On Thursday Duduzane Zuma appeared in court on charges of culpable homicide, however the fleet of cars that accompanied him raised eyebrows.
Former president Jacob Zuma's son appeared in court on 12 July, where his case was postponed to 23 August.
However, South Africans were more interested in the fleet that accompanied him. Eyewitness News shared on its official Twitter page images of the brigade and it had social media users talking.
The post read,"#DuduzaneZuma apparently former Pres Zuma here - either that, or Duduzane received VIP protection. Duduzane left in the Merc Van. BB."
The thread continued to state the reporters inquired on why the Presidential Protection Unit members were at the Randburg Magistrates’Court. It was then confirmed the former SA head of state was indeed at his son's trial.
According to reports, Zuma was at the court but he never made it to the trial because the matter was postponed before he arrived.
Social media users were furious over the VIP protection the former president received to the court. According to South Africans, more taxpayer money was splurged on Zuma.
Briefly.co.za gathered five tweets, where social media users stated exactly what they thought of Zuma's protection brigade to his son's trial.
