Hanekom approached the court to have the allegation tested.

He says the claim has caused damage to his reputation and would continue to so if unchallenged.

The Durban High Court found the statement to be derogatory and false, ordering him to delete the tweet and apologise within 24 hours.

Zuma has not complied with the court order and has instead applied for leave to appeal the ruling.
