Bail denied for gangsters accused of killing Emaan Solomons (7)



Court has denied bail for gangsters who were accused of firing the shots that led to the death of a seven-year-old girl.

Chivargo Fredericks and Eben Basson appeared in the Simons Town Magistrates Court on Friday.

The pair were arrested shortly after Emaan Solomons was shot dead in February.

The seven-year-old was playing in front of her home before she was hit by a stray bullet.

The case against Basson and Fredericks has been transferred to the Western Cape High Court.

The date for their first pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for 5 February and a trial date has been set for between April and June.

Solomon’s’ death vexed Ocean View residents and the high rate of gang violence in the community which claims the life of children was highlighted.

It’s understood that the accused were targeting a rival gangster who initially tried to kill their leader.

However, instead of hitting their target, the little girl was hit.

She died in the hospital.
