The Roodepoort Magistrate's Court was on Monday expected to hear whether the national director of public prosecutions will proceed with the rape case against Kwaito musician Sipho Charles Ndlovu.

The Roodepoort Magistrate's Court was on Monday expected to hear whether the national director of public prosecutions (NDPP) will proceed with the rape case against Kwaito musician Sipho Charles Ndlovu, also known as "Brickz".

In August, Ndlovu's lawyer, Dumisani Mabunda, told the court he had made representations to the NDPP on behalf of Ndlovu.

Mabunda said the case against his client was "weak and filled with holes".

During the last appearance in September, Mabunda told the court that he spoke to the chief prosecutor, who was going to escalate the matter to the national director of public prosecutions (NDPP).

Ndlovu was accused of raping a 17-year-old girl at his home in Honeydew, Johannesburg, in March last year.

The rape was reported in October.

After an unsuccessful bail application in the magistrate's court, Ndlovu's lawyers went to the high court where they secured him bail of R50,000 in December.

During bail proceedings, Ndlovu's lawyer at the time, Isaac Mokgobi, indicated that his client intended pleading not guilty.
