The judge says Moyane must be fired regardless of what the outcome of his disciplinary inquiry is, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.

Nugent also slammed Moyane for failing to appear before his commission of inquiry.

Meanwhile, hearings by the Nugent commission continue this week where the restructure IT infrastructure is in sharp focus.

There are sufficient grounds based on the evidence that has already been presented to warrant this serious recommendation to the President.
