Gordhan's lawyer explained that this comes after the months of attacks against the minister.

The minister is expected to also file a complaint at the Equality Court.

According to the lawyer, the final straw was when Malema called Gordhan a “dog of white monopoly capital”.

The EFF has been out for Gordhan's blood, and they even targeted his daughter, Anusha Gordhan.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Malema accused Anusha of scoring about R80 million's tenders for her father.

The minister is expected to comment on the cases as soon as he has officially opened them.
