He also argued that it was unfair to be subjected to the Nugent inquiry and his disciplinary inquiry headed by advocate Azhar Bham at the same time.
But Ramaphosa responded saying the matter was moot as he decided to fire Moyane anyways.
Zuma came to Moyane’s defence last week, telling the court that Nugent had no authority to recommend Moyane’s firing.
Moyane’s lawyer Eric Mabuza could not be reached for comment. He is however expected to go to the North Gauteng High Court to seek an interdict against Ramaphosa’s dismissal later this week.
