JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – A South African court on Friday found Duduzane Zuma, son of former president Jacob Zuma, not guilty of culpable homicide and negligent driving over a fatal car crash, saying prosecutors had failed to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt.

Duduzane Zuma’s sports car collided with a minibus taxi on a highway in Johannesburg in February 2014, killing a woman.
