Judge postpones Zulu prince sentencing

2010-05-31 10:09

The sentencing of Prince Sifiso Zulu for culpable homicide after

two people died in a car crash was postponed today as the Durban Regional Court

did not receive pre-sentencing reports.

Magistrate Thomas Nhleko adjourned the matter to August 26.

Zulu’s defence lawyer, Lonwabo Dandala, told the court the clerk of

the court had failed to do her job properly by not handing in a request for the


Zulu jumped a red traffic light in a BMW X5 and collided with a

Mitsubishi double-cab, killing two members of the Soul’s Harbour Ministries

Church and injuring 10 others in March 2008.

He was found guilty in April of seven counts, including culpable

homicide, reckless driving, failing to stop to perform the duties of a driver

after an accident, and failing to render assistance to the injured.
