Convicted rapist and kwaito star Sipho “Brickz” Ndlovu is back behind bars to serve his 15-year sentence after losing an appeal against his conviction.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) instructed Brickz to report to the Krugersdorp Prison on Friday following the verdict.

“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,” said NPA South Gauteng spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane in an interview with Sunday World.

Brickz’ manager Grey Mafumbu told TshisaLIVE that he was with Brickz when the South Gauteng High Court made its judgement last week and on Friday when he handed himself in.

“I was with him in court and he was broken. He was sad. He was trying to smile through it. Even on Friday, it was a sad moment but he is strong. I have visited him before (in prison) and he is fine. He is staying strong for everyone. We can take the judgement.”

He said Brickz’s family was left devastated by the news but hide their tears because they don’t want sympathy.
