Khulubuse Zuma, a nephew of President Jacob Zuma, agreed to pay R23-million ($1.6-million) to settle a lawsuit that found him partly responsible for the destruction of gold-mining assets near Johannesburg. Zuma has already paid R5-million and will settle the rest in monthly installments, trade union Solidarity said in an e-mailed statement Wednesday. The organisation represents some of the 5 300 employees at the Pamodzi and Grootvlei gold mines who lost their jobs when the assets were ransacked after Aurora Empowerment Systems took control in 2009.
