Bloemfontein - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has dismissed the appeal application by Aurora Empowerment Systems, which means they have to cough up more than R1.7bn for the debts of the Aurora gold mine.

"The application for leave to appeal is dismissed with costs on the grounds that there is no reasonable prospect of success in an appeal and there is no other compelling reason why an appeal should be heard," according to the order handed down by the court.

President Jacob Zuma's nephew, Khulubuse Zuma; former president Nelson Mandela's grandson, Zondwa Mandela; Thulani Ngubani, and Fazel and Solly Bhana applied for leave to appeal.
