Taxi commuter Noni Mdakane described the night that Duduzane Zuma’s Porsche smashed into the taxi. She had been traveling in, resulting in the death of Zimbabwean national, Phumzile Dube.
Mdakane was the State’s fourth witness to testify on the first day of Zuma’s trial in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Mike Hellens, SC, when he cross-examined her and refused to answer some questions she believed. She had already answered.
Moveover, Hellens asked Mdakane if she could tell the court, for certain, that Zuma’s car was speeding.
“It was speeding, Your Honour. I say that because it overtook our taxi,” Mdakane said.
She added that she was certain that the driver of the taxi was driving “well,” insinuating that if Zuma’s car overtook their vehicle, he must have been speeding.
However, Hellens put it to her that Zuma’s car had hit the side of the taxi from its front, meaning it could not have overtaken it.
The senior counsel also asked how the then 68-year-old Mdakane could have seen the side or back of the car to notice Zuma’s speeding vehicle.
