Kwaito star Brickz to be sentenced for rape


Convicted rapist and Kwaito musician Brickz is expected to appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court for sentencing.

Last month Magistrate John Baloyi found the famed musician guilty of raping a 17-year-old girl back in 2013 following a three-year court battle.

During his previous appearance Brickz’s lawyer, Pieter Du Plessis, persuaded the court to postpone the sentencing proceedings arguing that he was not ready to argue on behalf of his client as he was only assigned the case earlier in the week.
Brickz was arrested in November 2013 and after serving a little over a month in prison was released on R50‚000 bail by the Palm Ridge High Court.
