President Jacob’s Zuma’s son is to be questioned by police following a car accident that left one woman dead and two others seriously injured.

President Jacob’s Zuma’s son is to be questioned by police this week following a car accident that left one woman dead and two others seriously injured after his Porsche smashed into a packed taxi in Johannesburg recently.

According to the Sunday Times, Duduzane Zuma had been driving his car, a Porsche 911 Turbo, at the time of the accident which happened on 1 February in heavy rain in Grayston Drive in Sandton. However, a breathalyser test to determine his blood alcohol level was not carried out. This is a mandatory test at an accident scene.

Metro police on Saturday denied having given Zuma preferential treatment at the scene, despite having allowed him to also have his car towed away.

The deceased woman, Phumzile Dube, 30, was killed instantly. She was buried on Saturday at her hometown, Plumtree, in Zimbabwe.

Zuma is widely regarded as his father’s favourite and he enjoys a close relationship with the controversial Gupta family. In 2010 he was embroiled in a scandal involving the takeover of Kumba’s Shishen mine – along with the Guptas.
