Cape Town - Trade Union Solidarity said in a statement on Wednesday that it has reached a settlement with Khulubuse Zuma over the Aurora saga, after six years of lawsuits and many delays.

In terms of the agreement Zuma, who is the nephew of President Jacob Zuma, has to pay R23m in damages to the liquidators of the Pamodzi and Aurora mines, while the North Gauteng High Court issued a court order on Wednesday for the sequestration of the members of the Bhana family who were involved in the destruction of Aurora Empowerment Systems.

Solidarity general secretary Gideon du Plessis said that former Aurora employees, who number about 5 300, will now receive part of their outstanding monies from the Zuma settlement and the income from the selling of the Bhanas' assets.
