CAPE TOWN - The mother of six-year-old Saadiqah Lippert, who was killed by a stray bullet in Athlone, says she wants justice for her daughter.

The two men accused of fatally shooting the little girl appeared in the Athlone Magistrates Court today, where the case was postponed for two weeks.

The men, who are known to the little girl's family, allegedly shot her while she was playing outside her house in Hazendal last month.

Saadiqah's mother, Chemieze, Francis said, "It's hurting me inside, the fact that they're postponing [this case] every time. I don't want these two to get bail because I don't want them to be with their families as I can't be with my child. "
