Old Mutual director will be first of many to resign, says Sikonathi Mantshantsha
Old Mutual has lost its first board member amidst the ongoing legal fight with its on-again, off-again CEO Peter Moyo.
Pinky Moholi resigned with immediate effect and financial journalist Sikonathi Mantshantsha expects that a few other board directors will follow suit.
Moholi chaired the remuneration committee at Old Mutual and served on the insurer’s board for seven years.
Moyo and Old Mutual have filed several legal actions against each other in a dispute about his axing.
Moholi was one of the 14 Old Mutual directors who unanimously agreed to have Moyo fired.
