general pleaded innocent in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

home in Johannesburg
The Tanzanian and Rwandan nationals stood in the dock as the charges were
read out. One of them, Pascal Kanyandekwe, was wearing a smart suit. He allegedly
hired his co-accused to kill Nyamwasa after the ex-army chief fled to South Africa.
The state alleges that one of the accused was Nyamwasa's chauffeur at the
time of the shooting.
The prosecution says one of the men on trial is also a former soldier from Rwanda.
All the men pleaded not guilty to all charges against them.
