Johannesburg – The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) said on Saturday that after investigating the shooting of musician Khuli Chana they had recommended that the two police officers involved in the case be charged with murder.

Chana, whose real name is Khulane Morule, was shot and wounded by police, reportedly in an unmarked vehicle in Midrand.

The two Gauteng policemen have been summoned to court following the shooting

The officers, from Bedfordview, Johannesburg, were tracking kidnappers and allegedly mistook Chana's luxury sedan for that of the kidnappers.

IPID spokesman Moses Dlamini said they had been investigating the matter and had recommended that the two policemen be charged with attempted murder.

"The director of public prosecutions agrees with these recommendations," said Dlamini.

The two cops were expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on 18 February 2014.
