Six foreign nationals accused of trying to kill a controversial ex-Rwandan

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

They are accused of attempting to murder Kayumba Nyamwasa outside his Atholl

home in Johannesburg

in 2010.

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.
