A 51-year-old suspect, arrested following a collision with former President Jacob Zuma's vehicle last week, has been granted bail of R500 at the Eshowe Magistrate’s Court in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Mbuyiseni Ntuli faces charges of drunken driving and reckless and negligent driving. Authorities state that the suspect's vehicle collided with Zuma's official armoured state vehicle.

The incident occurred on Thursday night on the R66 while Zuma was reportedly traveling between Nkandla and Eshowe.

The case has been postponed to May 3 for additional investigations.
