Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane says the state argued that Zuma failed dismally to be a prudent driver.

Judgment in Duduzane Zuma culpable homicide case is expected to be delivered on 12 July.

Minibus taxi passenger Phumzile Dube died after Zuma's car crashed into a minibus taxi on the M1 south near the Grayston turnoff in Johannesburg in 2014.

Counsel for Duduzane Zuma‚ Mike Hellens SC‚ has argued that the state had not proved its case against his client.

Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane says Zuma's lawyers called in experts who testified that the car he was driving had a defect.

The state prosecutor argued that Duduzane Zuma failed dismally to be a prudent driver on the evening of the crash. He pleaded with the court to find him guilty with culpable homicide.

READ: Speed at which Duduzane Zuma was travelling brought into question

Zuma's lawyer maintains that Zuma couldn't have seen the puddle that he hit and that his vehicle would spin out of control. He went on to say the state is painting Zuma as a devil even though the minibus taxi and Zuma were travelling at the same speed.
