Durban - A Springfield Park man alleged to have shot and killed an e-hailing food service driver made a brief appearance in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Monday.

It is alleged an altercation ensued between the suspect and the deceased inside the outlet.
Upon returning to his motorbike, Musonera was shot and died in hospital a few hours later.
Pillay remains in police custody at Durban Central SAPS.
The matter was adjourned to next week, for an identity parade to be held.
Following the murder delivery bikers held a silent protest outside the outlet in rememberance of Musonera.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele confirmed Pillay's arrest.
Mbele said Berea SAPS had received a complaint of a shooting on Florida Road on June 18.
"On arrival they found a 33-year-old man with two gunshot wounds to the body. He was taken to hospital for medical attention.
