The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is reportedly going to withdraw corruption charges against former president Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane, who was previously accused of involvement in an alleged attempt to bribe former deputy minister Mcebisi Jonas.
According to the local mass media publications, a official statement will be made during Specialised Commercial Crimes Court processing, which Duduzane is going to visit on Thursday. Until that time both sides — the NPA as well as Zuma’s lawyers — refused to give any comment on the case so the reason behind this decision remains unknown.
According to the reports, Duduzane Zuma allegedly attended a meeting held at the Guptas’ Saxonwold home in 2015. Besides the bribe of R600m, which was allegedly made during that gathering, Ajay Gupta offered Jonas the job of finance minister.
