Cape Town - Baby Zahnia Woodward’s mother, Cindy Woodward, is collecting signatures for a petition which she will bring before the Western Cape High Court on Friday in a bid to prevent her child’s alleged killers from getting bail.

Six-month-old Zahnia was in the arms of her father, Bradley Robyn, when a bullet hit her head. 

It is alleged that the pair had been sitting on the porch when a white VW Golf drove by and shots were fired at an alleged gang leader standing on the corner of the road, near her father’s home.

Christopher September, Larry Johnson, Taswill Kriel, Morné May and Miriam Johnson made their bail application on Wednesday. On Friday they are set to hear the outcome.

They are accused of murder, attempted murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and obstructing the ends of justice.

A frustrated Woodward said she was angered that the defence team in the matter argued that there was no public interest in the case.

“It felt like they would get bail and that scared me. Even hearing their applications - three of the accused said they would like bail so they can be able to provide for their children.

“What about my child that they killed? Who do I have to work to provide for?” she asked.
