And lost his appeal:
Former president Jacob Zuma loses his appeal against a high court ruling that he defamed ANC veteran Derek Hanekom, who he accused of being a "known enemy agent".
The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein, on Wednesday, dismissed Zuma's appeal without it being heard, stating that there is no reasonable prospect of success in the appeal.
The SCA further held the view that there are no other compelling reasons why the appeal should be heard.
