JOHANNESBURG - Former president Jacob Zuma has publicly apologised to ANC veteran, Derek Hanekom.

The apology is for a Tweet last year saying that Hanekom was a known enemy agent.

Hanekom lodged a R500,000 defamation lawsuit against the former president.

Zuma lost his Constitutional Court bid to appeal a judgment ordering him to apologise and pay damages for the Tweet.

On Sunday afternoon he posted an apology on Twitter, in isiZulu and Hanekom has accepted the apology.
