A smiling Duduzane Zuma arrived at the Johannesburg Central police station early on Monday morning, ahead of an expected appearance before the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court later in the day.
The 34-year-old’s lawyer, Rudi Krause, told the Sunday Times he did not know what charges Zuma would face, but National Prosecuting Authority and Hawks sources confirmed they related to the plot to bribe former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas. Krause added that Zuma was the only person who had been summonsed.
He arrived back in South Africa from abroad last week to attend the weekend funeral of his younger brother, Vusi. Zuma was briefly detained at the airport when he arrived in South Africa from Dubai for Vusi's funeral, and questioned in relation to a "2016 Rosebank case". This is understood to be the case opened by Jonas after the Guptas' alleged attempt to bribe him.
Law enforcement authorities are also understood to be considering charging Zuma in connection with the Estina dairy project, in which Gupta companies stand accused of fraudulently receiving millions of rands intended for poor black farmers in the Free State. He is a director of Westdawn Investments, one of the Gupta companies that allegedly siphoned off money from the farm project.
And on Thursday, he is due in the Randburg Magistrate's Court charged with culpable homicide relating to a 2014 car crash.
