Petrol station shooting Part 3: Friends welcome bail denial

BY CHARL BOSCH - JANUARY 29, 2015

Friends of Toufiq Joseph have welcomed the Cape Town Magistrate's Court’s ruling in denying bail to his alleged killer, David Forbes.

“I feel a bit happy that justice has been served a man went up to Pollsmoor for seven days. I feel they are making Toufiq’s image bad, they have comments about him being a gangster which isn’t true,” a childhood friend of Joseph told Eyewitness News outside the court.

Twenty-three year old Joseph was shot dead by the H2O concert boss outside a petrol station in Gardens, Cape Town on Sunday, after getting into an argument over what is believed to be a ticket to the event. Yesterday, the Cape Argus reported that Joseph was due to appear in Cape Town Regional Court on charges of housebreaking and that four knives, one covered in blood, was found by investigators in his Volkswagen Golf GTI shortly after he had been shot.
