Tiso Blackstar specialist reporter Karyn Maughan weighs in on the pending case between the two ANC members.

African National Congress national executive committee member Derek Hanekom is suing former president Jacob Zuma to the tune of R500, 000 over a tweet where the former president described Hanekom as a known enemy agent.

The defamation case is expected to be heard next week in the Durban High Court.

The controversial tweet came in the wake of Hanekom meeting with opposition parties to discuss a motion to remove Zuma last year, thus prompting the former president to respond on social media.

Clement Manyathela talks to Tiso Blackstar specialist reporter Karyn Maughan about the case.

Maughan says Hanekom's concern is the former president calling him a known enemy agent,

Zuma has essentially said Hanekom was an apartheid spy. This is totally untrue and there is no evidence and he wants Jacob Zuma to apologies.

Maughan says Zuma has opposed Hanekom's application and filed a notice of opposition at the Durban High Court on Monday.
