Kwaito singer Brickz going back to prison
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) instructed Brickz to report to the Krugersdorp Prison on Friday following the verdict.
Sipho Charles Ndlovu, aka Brickz, is headed back to prison to serve out the rest of his 15-year sentence after losing his appeal in the South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.
“We can confirm that Brickz was ordered to avail himself at the Roodepoort Clerk of the Court on Friday at or before 12 pm where he would be taken to the prison authorities to resume his 15-year prison sentence after he lost his appeal on Wednesday,” said NPA South Gauteng spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane in an interview with Sunday World.
The case was first brought to light back in 2013 when his niece came forward with the claims and was supported by his wife.
After a protracted court battle, Brickz was found guilty of rape in July of 2017 and was sentenced in October of the same year.
He appealed the case earlier this year and was released on bail in April pending appeal. The case was finally heard this past week and Brickz lost – meaning he has to serve out the rest of his sentence.
