Old Mutual wants the Johannesburg High to dismiss its former CEO, Peter Moyo's case for damages. It says he's going in circles, repeating arguments that have already been rejected by the court before.

Moyo, fired in June 2019, is suing the company for R250 million. Despite a full bench court ruling in 2020 that his dismissal was lawful, Moyo still contends it wasn't.

He's also suing for "insults" he says the company and its directors threw at him when it published statements and conducted media interviews saying he contravened his fiduciary duties to Old Mutual.
