A magistrate at the Mitchells Plain Magistrates’ Court will give judgment whether the young man may be granted bail or not.
The suspect, who cannot be identified until an identity parade has been conducted, formally applied for bail on Thursday.
The matter was postponed to 27 August.
The State has yet to indicate when the identity parade will take place.
Chad, 19, from Beacon Valley was the drum major for Littlewood Primary Drill Squad and the Western Province Marching Squad.
He was also involved in the Malay and Christmas choirs and was a member of the Pennsylvanians minstrel troupe.
In just a few months, Chad was expected to join the South Africa Navy, but his life was cut short when he was shot multiple times in Beaufort Street in Rocklands in June.
Chad was attending the 21st birthday party of a friend when he was shot and killed.
Chad was shot between 12 and 14 times in the head and face.
The motive for the killing is yet to be revealed, but the suspect was known to Chad.
Chad’s parents, Bruce and Natasha, have never missed a court appearance and are often supported by protesters, who have called for the suspect to remain behind bars.
