The Democratic Alliance today said
they will write to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate requesting
an investigation into the conduct of police officers following a collision
involving President Jacob Zuma’s son, Duduzane Zuma in Johannesburg a week
DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard said it
has emerged that Duduzane Zuma was not given the mandatory breathalyser test
following a fatal car collision that killed one and critically injured two a
week ago. It has also been reported that neither has Duduzane been charged with
culpable homicide, even though it is standard procedure for any driver involved
in a fatal collision to be charged.
Barnard said the IPID must therefore
investigate why standard procedures were flouted, and who gave the order for
this to happen. The IPID should pull the telephone records of all police
officers involved if it has to.
She further said Duduzane Zuma, must
be treated like any other South African citizen. The law cannot be bent or
ignored just because President Jacob Zuma is his father.
