This is in relation to a tweet last month in which Zuma referred to Hanekom as a “known enemy agent”.
The tweet came after EFF leader Julius Malema alleged that Hanekom conspired with the party to oust Zuma through a motion of no confidence in the National Assembly.
Hanekom says the matter will be heard in the Durban High Court next Wednesday.
