A 21-year-old man has pleaded not guilty in the Pietermaritzburg High Court to charges that he murdered a security guard at the Mtulwa Clinic in Dalton in an attempt to rob him of his firearm, on November 13 last year.

Du Plessis told KwaZulu Natal Judge President Vuka Tshabalala and assessors that his client alleges that he had been walking in the vicinity of the clinic, on the day in question, when he was chased by “three or four people whose faces were covered” and who were armed with firearms.
