Duduzane's lawyers told the court that the 911 was prone to aquaplaning (when a layer of water builds between the wheels of the vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction) and experts have told the courts that the there was a pool of water on the road on the night of the incident.


State Prosecutor Yusuf Baba told the court that there's evidence that proves Duduzane is guilty of causing the crash, that he failed to take the necessary precautions on the rainy summers night and he failed to be a sensible driver.
