Convicted rapist Ndlovu granted bail for appeal bid
CONVICTED rapist Kwaito star Sipho “Brickz” Ndlovu was granted bail of R80 000 by the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
The bail conditions included surrendering all his travel documents and not entering any international entry or departure point.
The musician was further not allowed to leave Joburg without informing the investigating officer and had to report to the Jabulani police station every Monday and Wednesday.
The kwaito star was found guilty of raping his niece and sentenced to 15 years in prison by magistrate John Baloyi last year.
Ndlovu’s leave to appeal his rape conviction was granted by the Johannesburg High Court last month and his legal team brought a bail application pending the appeal.
Another of his bail conditions was that he must attend all the appeal proceedings.
The Sweetie my baby hitmaker was found guilty of raping his relative at his home in Ruimsig, Roodepoort, in 2013.
The rape survivor, who cannot be named, did not attend the bail application hearing owing to the publicity the trial was generating. – African News Agency (ANA)
