Khulubuse Zuma owes R29 000 in traffic fines

Zuma is President Jacob Zuma’s nephew and one of the directors of Aurora Empowerment Systems, the company which was removed as the preferred bidder to buy the insolvent Pamodzi gold mines.

According to a report in the Mercury newspaper, warrants for R10 000 have been issued to Zuma. The traffic fines date back to January 2010 and are for alleged offences which include the absence of taxi rank permits, speeding, washing vehicles in the street, parking facing oncoming traffic, not having an operator card, disregarding traffic lights and not having licence plates.

Three luxury cars and household goods belonging to Zuma were auctioned off last month to pay R10-million owed to Protea Coin Security.

The security company was trying to recover the R10-million owed by Aurora for services it provided at Pamodzi’s Grootvlei mine in Springs, east of Johannesburg.

Aurora has been accused of destroying infrastructure at the mines and causing the loss of more than 5 300 jobs. Former president Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Zondwa, is another Aurora director.


Trade union Solidarity brought an application to have Aurora liquidated as part of its claim for R3.1-million in unpaid wages to workers at the two mines. – Sapa
