CAPE TOWN - The security manager at the De Zalze Estate says guards received no complaints about any strange or suspicious activities on the night of the Van Breda triple murder.

Henri van Breda is on trial in the Western Cape High Court, in connection with the murders of his parents and older brother, and the attempted murder of his younger sister in early 2015.

Marcia Rossouw started working as the security manager at the De Zalze estate in February 2014.

Several upgrades to the perimeter fencing were made that year, while further renovations were made in 2015.

Rossouw, however, says these were planned and not as a result of the triple murder.

According to the estate's security report, guards completed their required patrols that night.

Rossouw says she was at the estate when police arrived on the scene.

She says residents have told them that they heard a car speeding on the night of the attack.

They, however, did not receive any noise complaint or anything suspicious that evening.
