CAPE TOWN – Enver Hassim, accused of double murder and IT manager at the Wynberg Campus of Schools, is due in court next week on an official bail application.

Hassim, who remains in custody, was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after allegedly shooting two men, aged 81 and 56.

The victims have been identified as Stephen Carrington and his son Robert Carrington.

Hassim then went to the cops after the incident.

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has distanced itself from the incident.

“This is a non-school incident that took place outside of the school premises in another suburb in residential accommodation. Although the accused is employed as an IT manager for the Wynberg Schools Campus, he has no direct contact with the learners in that capacity, ”said spokesman Bronagh Hammond.

National Prosecution Authority spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said Hassim will appear in Wynberg Magistrates’ Court on October 13 to obtain information about his release on bail.

Police spokesman Wesley Twigg said the case was under investigation.

“The circumstances surrounding a shooting that occurred on Saturday October 2 at around 1:30 am in Tiverton Heights, Morton Road, Plumstead are under investigation. Diep River Police were called to the scene and found two adult men, aged 81 and 56, lying on the apartment floor.

“They were declared dead on the spot by medical staff. A double murder case has been opened for investigation. A suspect has reported to Diep River Police in connection with the murders and has been formally charged with the murders. The first appearance was on Monday (October 4) before the Wynberg Magistrates’ Court, ”Twigg said.
