‘Brickz’ waits for sen­tenc­ing

Daily Dispatch - - News -

CHARLES Sipho Ndlovu‚ pop­u­larly known as “Brickz” will have to wait an­other two weeks for sen­tenc­ing pro­ceed­ings to com­mence.

The Sweety My Baby hit-maker changed his le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tive af­ter be­ing found guilty in the Rood­e­poort Mag­is­trate’s Court of rap­ing a 16-yearold girl at his Ruim­sig home in 2013.

His new lawyer‚ ad­vo­cate Piet du Plessis, told the court he needed to go through the court tran­scripts af­ter re­ceiv­ing them to­day.

Mag­is­trate John Baloyi post­poned the mat­ter to Septem­ber 28.

Ndlovu spent a month in jail be­fore be­ing re­leased on R50 000 bail.

His bail was re­voked in Au­gust as the court be­lieved it would not be in the in­ter­est of jus­tice to re­lease him be­fore the sen­tenc­ing. — Tankiso Makhetha
