JOHANNESBURG- On Friday, the convicted rapist Kwaito star Sipho “Brickz” Ndlovu has been granted bail by the the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court.
Ndlovu was released on R80, 000 bail and the court ordered that he is not allowed to change residential address without informing the investigating officer.
Bail conditions include surrendering all his travel documents; not allowing him to leave Johannesburg or be seen near Airport without informing the investigating officer; and he has to report to the Jabulani Police Station every Monday and Wednesday.
On October 2017, the kwaito artist was found guilty of raping his niece and was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by Magistrate John Baloyi.
The Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court found Ndlovu guilty of raping a relative and was sentenced to 15 years. His leave to appeal his conviction has been granted by the South Gauteng High Court.
In March Brickz told the court that he has always maintained his innocence and has said the “truth will come out.”
“I have made an oath to myself that I will bring myself to this court to make sure that this matter comes to an end, so that it also brings me closure. I don’t see how it will be so easy for me to just decide to abscond when I’m getting much closer to the truth.”
The rape survivor, who cannot be named, did not attend the hearing owing to the publicity the trial was generating
