Johannesburg - A trial against two police officers accused of shooting at musician Khuli Chana will begin in September, the Randburg Magistrate's Court said on Friday.

A trial date has been set for 8 September.

Mduduzi Mfundisi Nzuza and Sam Baloyi face charges of attempted murder, reckless endangerment, failure to take reasonable precautions to avoid danger, and negligent use of a firearm.

The pair allegedly shot at the award-winning musician's car when he 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 kidnapped a 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.

A warrant of arrest for Nzuza was cancelled on Friday when he produced his mother's death certificate.

He had failed to make his last court appearance due to her death.

Both men are out on bail.
