Cops to serve notice on Sifiso Zulu

Durban - Police were on their way to the city's magistrate's court on Wednesday to serve a notice to surrender on businessman Sifiso Zulu's lawyer.

"We contacted his attorney this morning and he informed us that he [the attorney] is in court, so we are now on our way there to serve the notice to him," said Colonel Jay Naicker.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Ramkisson said the notice was issued on Tuesday afternoon when Zulu failed to arrive at the Westville prison to start serving his three-year jail term for culpable homicide.

"The notice was issued and it's now the prerogative of the [SA Police Service] to deliver it to him or his legal counsel, and once that has been served Zulu thereafter has 48 hours to surrender himself to the clerk of Durban Magistrate's Court."

Correctional services spokesperson Nokuthula Zikhali said Zulu had not yet arrived at the prison.

On Friday, the KwaZulu-Natal High Court dismissed Zulu's appeal against his conviction and sentence.

The 42-year-old former head of the Durban Chamber of Commerce was convicted in April 2010.

The court found that Zulu, driving a BMW X5, jumped a red robot and crashed into a bakkie, killing two members of the Souls Harbour Church and injuring eight others in March 2008.

He was sentenced to five years in jail (two years suspended), and was fined R7 000 for various driving offences.
