The Derek Hanekom versus Jacob Zuma defamation case rests on one issue.
When the former president tweeted that the ANC stalwart was a "known enemy agent", what would the reasonable person assume he meant? Hanekom said Zuma was implying that he was an apartheid-era spy, evidenced by some insulting and demeaning tweets by those following the former president on social media. Zuma, however, argued that he did not mean that at all.
He was reacting to revelations that Hanekom had been part of a "grand plan" to oust him.
