solidariteitEWN reports that trade union Solidarity says former Aurora workers are entitled to at least R28,000 each, but Khulubuse Zuma says he still needs to consult his lawyers.  

The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has dismissed an application to appeal a High Court judgment that found Zuma and four other directors were reckless in managing the Pamodzi mines they managed.  The court found they are liable for damages after thousands of people were left without jobs.  Solidarity's general secretary Gideon du Plessis said:  “For the workers it’s a victory because they’ll either get money or be satisfied if there’s a sequestration, now the Aurora directors could lose everything as was the case with workers.”  It is understood the directors could be sequestrated if they don’t pay up.
