'Khulubuse Zuma has the most to lose. He is a wealthy, successful businessman'

They are now be liable to pay R1.7 billion in damages.

“An investigation into all the alleged fraudulent activity now needs to take place, which means if they don’t pay, they will be immediately sequestrated,” said Du Plessis.

“It’s been a five-year battle and at long last we can say that our trust in the legal system has been restored.”
