The Durban High Court has taken legal possession of Khulubuse Zuma's assets after he failed to comply with a repayment agreement that was reached with liquidators.
The court made this decision on Friday, 18 January, according to a report by TimesLIVE and Gideon du Plessis, General Secretary of Solidarity feels justice will now prevail.
This means that justice will finally prevail for the 5,300 Aurora employees who lost their jobs after Aurora destroyed the Pamodzi mines that were temporarily placed under their supervision by the Pamodzi liquidators in 2009-2010, and after Aurora also did not pay the employees’ salaries for a period of eight months.
Khulubuse, who is the nephew of Jacob Zuma, has been in the news over the alleged looting of Aurora mines for a long time.

Now it has happened, after only 300 of Aurora's 5 300 former employees was paid after an 8-year battle.
Aurora was already liquidated back in 2010 when it first came to light that things weren't above board at the company.
