Brickz trial: sentencing postponed

The sentencing of kwaito artist Sipho "Brickz" Ndlovu has been postponed

Ndlovu’s lawyer Piet du Plessis said he was ready with the pre-sentencing report, but that the full record would only delivered to him later in the day.

He said they needed a week or two to analyse the record, including the doctors’ records, and put a short heads of argument together.

In his brief appearance, Ndlovu was dressed in a dark brown blazer, white shirt and black jeans.

In July, he was found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl at his home in November 2013.

His R50 000 bail was revoked after the conviction.

At his last court appearance on 1 August, he testified that he had already begun a process to better his life in prison.

The Sweety, My Baby singer claimed that the rape charge was a “fake accusation”, and that the victim and the witness were close family members.

“I am willing to serve my sentence and was not raised to run from any ‘accusation’. I know the truth will come out. I’m innocent and my conscience is clear,” he said at the time.

Magistrate John Baloyi postponed the matter to 28 September.
