Khulubuse Zuma goes to court over R1.5 billion Aurora claims

2015-03-01 12:53

An urgent application by Khulubuse Zuma to have claims of approximately R1.5 billion against Aurora Empowerment Systems set aside, will be heard in the North Gauteng High Court tomorrow.

The Sunday Independent reported today that Zuma’s court bid could hinder efforts by liquidators of Pamodzi gold mine to hold the directors of Aurora responsible for the apparent stripping of assets at the mines in Springs and Orkney.

In 2009, Aurora was appointed by liquidators to manage the mines in Springs and Orkney.

However, the company instead allegedly stripped the mines of infrastructure and also left hundreds of employees without pay and surviving on handouts.

Last Thursday, court proceedings were postponed after Zuma’s lawyer left a file in Durban.

According to the Sunday Independent, Zuma’s application claims an error of law had occurred and decisions were taken in “bad faith” by the liquidators.

The court proceedings involving the liquidators’ claims against Aurora bosses are scheduled to resume towards the end of this month.
