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

Malema accused Gordhan of going to state-owned enterprises to remove black people and of being a "dog of white monopoly capital".

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

Malema has argued that his remarks don't amount to hate speech.
