Kwaito artist Sipho ‘Brickz’ Ndlovu is going back to jail after losing an appeal against his conviction. Earlier this year, Brickz was found guilty of raping his 17-year-old relative in 2013, and was sentenced to 15 years in jail.
In April 2018, Brickz was released on R80 000 bail, pending the appeal against his rape conviction. According to IOL, after losing his appeal, the Kwaito star was ordered to return to the Krugersdorp prison to serve out the rest of his 15-year sentence.
In an interview with Sunday World, NPA South Gauteng spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane said “We can confirm that Brickz was ordered to avail himself at the Roodepoort Clerk of the Court on Friday at or before 12pm where he would be taken to the prison authorities to resume his 15-year prison sentence after he lost his appeal on Wednesday.”
His manager Grey Mafumbu told TshisaLIVE that they tried their best and spent a lot of money trying to prove Sipho’s innocence.
“We’ve tried. We have really tried. Now we must just wait until the truth comes out. We are going to just chill at the moment. It has taken a lot of money trying to prove he is innocent,” – Grey said.
