Aurora bosses face criminal charges

2013-03-28 00:00

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma’s nephew, Khulubuse Zuma, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Zondwa Mandela, and other Aurora directors are facing criminal charges, according to an interim report of the liquidators.

The other Aurora directors are Michael Hulley, who is President Zuma’s lawyer, Sheshile Ngubane and Dato Raja Zainal Alam Shah. The charges have been referred to the police’s serious economic crimes unit.

The directors may face more charges as liquidators wind up the Master of the North Gauteng High Court insolvency inquiry into the company’s Orkney and Grootvlei mines in the next month.

The liquidators are expected to recommend further action based on the testimony and interrogation of witnesses.

The directors are accused of fraudulently transferring the company’s funds into their bank accounts. Their cases will be heard in August.

When contacted for comment by The Witness yesterday, Zuma cut the call while Mandela could not be reached.
