oa De Jure - The consequences of pleading a non-admission : notes
The purpose of pleadings is to define the issues in dispute in a civil case, not only for the judge but also for the other party. The opponent must be properly informed of the case he has to meet (Hillman Brothers Ltd v Kelly and Hingle 1926 WLD 153). Consequently a party has a duty to allege in his pleadings the material facts upon which he relies (Minister of Safety and Security v Slabbert 2010 2 All SA 474 (SCA) 475).
