  • Duduzane Zuma appears in the Commercial Crimes Court on 9 July 2018

The son of former President Zuma faced a throng of journalists as he walked in and out of the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Johannesburg, shackled and escorted by law enforcement officers.

Lawyer Rudi Krause spoke to TimesLIVE just after Duduzane had been processed at the Johannesburg Central police station‚ and confirmed that the 34-year-old had agreed to hand in his passport as part of a bail agreement with the state.

He has been charged over involvement in a bribe allegedly offered to former deputy Finance minister Mcebisi Jonas by the Guptas.

Zuma agreed to hand in his passport and will make arrangements with the investigating officer if he wants to travel overseas.

"This morning at around 9am Duduzane Zuma was in court facing charges of corruption and he was granted bail of R100 000".

Duduzane Zuma is in leg restrains for his court appearance on Monday.

The Guptas offered Jonas the position of finance minister in return for a bank transfer of 600 million rand and 600,000 rand in cash, if Jonas would assist the Guptas with their business ventures, according to a provisional charge sheet seen by Reuters.

He is also due in court on Thursday on culpable homicide charges over a deadly auto crash in 2014.

Duduzane's case has been suspended to January 24 2019.

Duduzane arrived back in South Africa from overseas last week to attend the weekend funeral of his younger brother, Vusi.

Previously, News24 reported that Duduzani Zuma was briefly detained at the OR Tambo International Airport after landing there on Thursday evening.
