JOHANNESBURG - Kwaito star Sipho Ndlovu, also known as 'Brickz', has been found guilty of rape in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court.

Judgment was handed down on Friday afternoon following a three-year long court case.

He will remain in custody until sentencing later in July.

Ndlovu raped a 16-year-old girl in 2013 at his home in Ruimsig, west of Johannesburg.

It’s understood his wife Nqobile Ndlovu assisted the victim in opening the charges against her husband.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku said, “Mr Ndlovu was convicted of rape. After the conviction, the R50,000 bail that he was released on was revoked, hence he is in custody.”

Ndlovu was arrested and charged on 1 November 2014 and had been out on R50,000 bail since.
