AfriForum says that it is satisfied that Duduzane Zuma had his time in court, despite being acquitted of his charges.
AfriForum is pleased Duduzane had his day in court, saying that their aim had been to ensure he is prosecuted like any other citizen would be, when facing similar charges.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the former president's son had been found not guilty of culpable homicide, as well as negligent driving.
Magistrate Tebogo Thupaatlase says that the State had failed to prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that Duduzane had been responsible for the death of Phumzile Dube.
Elias Maangwale, an investigator at AfriForum’s Private Prosecution Unit, commented that:
"AfriForum achieved this goal and abides by the court’s decision."
IOL reports that the National Prosecuting Authority had originally opted out of prosecuting Zuma, claiming that there was insufficient evidence.
After AfriForum had applied to privately prosecute the politician's son, the NPA had done a u-turn, overturning its decision and instituting prosecution against Duduzane.
