Former Old Mutual CEO Peter Moyo on Thursday sought to demonstrate that the breakdown in trust cited by his former employer as a reason for his axing was "artificially manufactured".

Moyo is in court to challenge his June 17 dismissal by the financial services firm, which he wants to be declared "unlawful, unconstitutional and null and void".
