JOHANNESBURG - Arguments in a politically-charged hate speech case between Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan and EFF leader, Julius Malema are expected to be heard in court on Thursday.

Last year, Gordhan, lodged a case against Malema over remarks he made outside the state capture inquiry venue.

Last month, a judge dismissed Gordhan's bid to strike sensitive reports from the court record.

Malema's arguing Gordhan's case is spurious and submits it should never have been entertained by the Equality Court.

He believes while his remarks might have offended Gordhan, they don't amount to hate speech.
