Johannesburg - The Gauteng father who "mistakenly" shot his son outside an Ennerdale school broke down before appearing in the Lenasia Magistrate's Court on Thursday morning.
Sibusiso Tshabalala, 50, is facing a murder charge and has appeared before Magistrate Maggie van der Merwe.
The father appeared in court wearing a purple sweatshirt, blue jeans and black torn shoes.
The mother of the 16-year-old was also present in the court. She sat quietly in the front row of the gallery silently crying while photographers took pictures of her and her husband.
