Following a hearing on Friday in the Mpumalanga High Court, Judge Mashile has decided to recuse himself from the matter. This comes after Peter Moyo’s legal team introduced allegations that Old Mutual was scandalising the court, putting the Judge in an untenable position. Old Mutual, despite asking them to remove this reference from their contempt papers, had no choice but to apply for the judge’s recusal when they refused to do so. The decision to proceed with the recusal application was a difficult one and we welcome and respect Judge Mashile’s decision to recuse himself.
