Moyo victimised by Old Mutual over whistle-blowing, Dali Mpofu tells court

Peter Moyo’s lawyer, advocate Dali Mpofu, says the axed Old Mutual CEO is a victim of the insurer’s inability to protect whistle-blowers.

“What we are really [dealing] with here is a case of victimisation,” said Mpofu on Thursday during an urgent high court hearing between the two parties. “The so-called breakdown in relationship is actually manufactured, it’s not real so the employer cannot benefit from it.

”  Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, also representing Moyo, said the only reason Moyo was fired was because of his conflict with Old Mutual chair Trevor Manuel and because of interviews he had with the media on the day of his suspension in May.
