Judgment in the "shoot the boer" hate speech trial of African National Congress (ANC) Youth League president Julius Malema was expected to be handed down in the High Court in Johannesburg on Monday.
ANC Youth League spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy said on Monday morning that the league "was not commenting on anything".
This was when she was asked if the league was expecting large number of supporters outside court.
The trial attracted large crowds of curious bystanders and Malema supporters in April. It was not certain if these supporters would be back outside court on Pritchard Street on Monday.
AfriForum Youth opened a civil case against Malema in the Equality Court after he sang the words "dubhula ibhunu", which translate to "shoot the boer", at a number of ANCYL gatherings.
It believed the words were threatening to minorities and a threat to the safety of Afrikaners and farmers. The action was supported by Tau-South Africa and the Association of Lawyers for Afrikaans.
The trial featured a number of witnesses who testified on the relevance of the song as part of the dismantling of apartheid and its place in history.
During his own testimony, Malema spoke of the ANCYL's policy on nationalisation and on land reform.
Malema and five other ANCYL office-bearers have also been brought before the ANC's disciplinary committee.
Proceedings were postponed last week and resumed on Sunday and was postponed again, to allow Malema to attend the court ruling on Monday.
The subject of the hearing includes comments they made about supporting the opposition in Botswana to enable a change of government. The ANC has charged that the six have brought the party into disrepute.
Malema lost an earlier hate speech case in which he suggested the woman who accused President Jacob Zuma of rape had a "nice time". He was fined R50 000.
