Zimbabwean family engages white supremacists to prosecute Zuma?

The group says it wants to prosecute Duduzane Zuma on manslaughter, or culpable homicide, charges emanating from a auto crash in which a 27-year-old woman died in 2014. A young woman, Phumzile Dube, was killed in the accident. Duduzane Zuma has not yet commented.

"The Dube family were never consulted, and neither were they informed of the decision not to prosecute".

The National Prosecuting Authority, in August 2015, decided not to prosecute Duduzane, despite the findings of an inquest that the President's son was negligent in the accident.

"Nel and AfriForum act in the case against Mr Zuma on behalf of Pedzisani Dube, the deceased's brother, and Edina Dube, her mother, who now looks after the deceased's five-year-old child... the proposed private prosecution should send a very clear message that no-one is exalted over the law, even if you are a Zuma", AfriForum said in a statement.

Former NPA prosecutor, Nel who joined the union this year confirmed that papers have been filed to pursue a culpable homicide case against Duduzane. He said he is very proud of the family to allow justice to be served.

"They want to ensure that justice is done, for them it's important". "The prosecution will then proceed like any other criminal case in court".

CEO of Afriforum Kallie Kriel said that no one is above the law "even if you are a Zuma". Such a certificate can only be obtained once the NPA has made a decision not to prosecute a matter.

AfriForum is in the process of applying for a nolle prosequi - a certificate needed for a private prosecution.

"We have assisted the Dube family to submit an application for a nolle prosequi certificate earlier this morning, to prosecute Mr Duduzane Zuma on a charge of culpable homicide", said Nel.

AfriForum is a non-governmental organisation, registered as a non-profit company, with the aim of protecting the rights of minorities.
