The case has been laid down to be heard on March 11 2019 and Ramaphosa will have to explain to the court before then why he opposes the action.
Both Dlamini and Gigaba have been found to have lied under oath.
Ramaphosa is under further pressure to take action against Gigaba after the public protector‚ Busisiwe Mkhwebane‚ found that he violated the executive ethics code‚ the constitution and parliament’s code of conduct when he lied under oath.
The constitutional court last week dismissed Gigaba’s application for leave to appeal against a lower court ruling that he lied to the court in the Fireblade case.
In September‚ the Constitutional Court found that Dlamini had tried to mislead the court in the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) case.
