The two policemen who shot at local musician Khuli Chana appeared in court today. A trial date has been set for September 8.

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 September 8.

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 October 28. Khuli told You Magazine that this ordeal has dragged on too long and he just wants it to end as soon as possible.

'I really just can’t wait for it to be over'

“I just want my sanity back and I just want to raise my kid and live a normal life that’s it. I really just can’t wait for it to be over.

“But I worship a living God and I think imma be alright,”

Khuli, 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 Bedfordview, Johannesburg, businessman.

The officers allegedly mistook Khuli'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.
