The Radical Economic Transformation Champions say they are '100 percent behind Jacob Zuma' and 'will meet Derek Hanekom in court'.

Hanekom is taking Zuma to court after the former president alleged in a tweet that Hanekom 'is a known enemy agent'.

Zuma made the accusations after revelations that Hanekom had met with the Economic Freedom Fighters in a bid to oust the former president from office.

The chairperson of the RET Champions, Nkosentsha Shezi, says they will continue to back the former president, having shown their support in numbers at his numerous court appearances as well as at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry in to State Capture.

"What we can say as RET Champions is that we are 100 percent behind Zuma, Derek Hanekom shall meet us in court and we will expose him. You cannot sue a person for calling you a known agent," Shezi said.

Hanekom is attempting to sue Zuma for defamation of character to the tune of R500 000 and court proceedings will commence on August 21.
