Mbuyiseni has been named as the man who crashed into Jacob Zuma’s car

A 51-year-old suspect found himself in hot water after crashing into former President Jacob Zuma’s car last week.

The incident, which occurred on the R66 between Nkandla and Eshowe, saw the man’s vehicle colliding with Zuma’s official armoured state vehicle.

The suspect, identified as Mbuyiseni Ntuli, was subsequently arrested and charged with drunken driving and reckless and negligent driving.

In a surprising turn of events, Ntuli was granted bail of R500 at the Eshowe Magistrate’s court in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

The decision to grant bail has raised eyebrows among the public, with many questioning the leniency of the court in such a serious matter involving a former head of state.

Speaking to reporters outside the courthouse, Ntuli expressed remorse for his actions and vowed to cooperate fully with the ongoing investigations.

“I deeply regret what happened and take full responsibility for my reckless behavior. I am committed to assisting the authorities in any way possible to resolve this matter,” Ntuli stated.

Meanwhile, the police have confirmed that the case has been adjourned to May 3 to allow for further investigations.

The incident has sparked concerns about the safety protocols surrounding VIP convoys and the need for stricter enforcement of road traffic laws to prevent similar incidents in the future.
