Johannesburg - The case of two police officers who allegedly shot at musician Khuli Chana was postponed in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Sam Baloyi and Mduduzi Mfundisi Nzuza would be back in court on 11 June.

The matter was postponed for the defence to get instructions from the State's attorney.

Prosecutor Yusuf Baba said the State had finished investigating the case.

Police shot at the award-winning musician's car when he allegedly failed to stop at a roadblock they had set up at a petrol station on the N1 in Midrand on 28 October.

Chana, whose real name is Khulane Morule, was wounded in the hand and back.

Police had been searching for a group of men who had kidnapped a Bedfordview, Johannesburg, businessman.

The officers allegedly mistook Chana's luxury sedan for that of the kidnappers.

The ransom money was to have been left at the petrol station.

A police officer has since been arrested and charged with the kidnapping.
