Prince Zulu's trial shelved

THE trial of Prince Sifiso Zulu, who faces seven charges, including two of culpable homicide, was postponed to September 16 in the Durban magistrate's court on Friday.

Zulu has denied that he was driving his BMW X5 when it was involved in a hit-and-run accident that killed two people and injured 10 others.

The vehicle allegedly skipped a red robot and crashed into a Mitsubishi double-cab in March last year.

Zulu's defence team on Friday said they needed more time to prepare for the cross-examination of a Vodacom cellphone expert who is to give evidence about calls made on the night of the accident.

Zulu burst into the limelight in 2000 when he issued a press statement on behalf of the Zulu royal family after the death of Prince Clement Zulu. He also clashed with IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi in an SABC interview during which he denounced the politician's claim to be the Zulu prime minister.

Zulu started his career in the department of Public Works in 1994.

He became national programme manager of a community-based public works programme that had a budget of R1billion.
