Duduzane Zuma arrives in court

Duduzani Zuma will appear in the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Johannesburg on Monday, his lawyer confirmed over the weekend.

Possible corruption charges aren't Duduzane's only concern, as he is also expected to appear in court on Thursday on a charge of culpable homicide.

It is believed he will face a corruption charge but this is unconfirmed as yet.

Duduzane Zuma is alleged to have been part of attempts to bribe a former deputy finance minister to agree to a top role in government.

He arrived at the police station just after 7am this morning‚ and greeted journalists as he walked inside.

Jonas revealed how he was offered a bribe to take the job of finance minister.

He is also due in court on Thursday on culpable homicide charges over a deadly vehicle crash in 2014.

Duduzane Zuma, the son of former South African President Jacob Zuma, has been released on bail after being charged for corruption.

Zuma has apparently been overseas since February; however, his brother, Vusi Nhlakanipho Zuma, died recently of lupus and Duduzani came to attend his funeral.

The case has been postponed to 24 January 2019 and a bail of 100,000 rand ($7,4000; $5,400) was granted.

Jonas claimed in an affidavit that he was called to a meeting with Zuma, Ajay Gupta and businessman Fana Hlongwane where Gupta allegedly offered him R600 million and the position of finance minister if he agreed to work with them.

The Hawks were immediately notified of his arrival and officers were sent to the airport where they produced a copy of the warrant of arrest for corruption.
