Brickz magistrate ‘not feeling well’

2013-11-18 10:30

The bail hearing for kwaito star Brickz may be postponed yet again because Magistrate Piet Kotze is not feeling well.

This is according to Brickz’s defence attorney, Isaac Mokgobi.

“The magistrate said he would only be able to listen to our arguments, but would not be able to deliver a verdict because he is not feeling well,” he said.

This is a blow to the artist, who was hoping to be released on bail today so that he could unite with his family and fans, who had gathered in the court gallery to drum up support for him.

The musician has already spent about 20 days in jail for allegedly raping a 17-year-old at his Ruimsig house on March 26.

City Press has also learnt that the musician has contracted flue while in the police holding cells at the weekend.

Brickz, who was clad in a khaki blazer, black shirt, blue pants and shoes, was already in the dock.
