The correctional service spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo has dismissed rumours that Kwaito star Brickzwas released from jail. It’s a LIE; he’s locked: Kwaito star Brickz still behind bars – Correctional services set record straight.

Correctional services set record straight

Last week, social media was left awash and in a frenzy after a picture of Brickz standing next to Dj Cleo in an SABCstudio resurfaced.

Brickz, whose real name is Sipho Charles, is still under incarceration, serving 15 years imprisonment after being convicted of rape.

According to Singabakho, the image circulated on social media was an old one, and Brickz has yet to serve half of his sentence.

Brickz is still in jail. What is circulating on social media is an old picture to spread fake news.

There is only one correctional services act, and how inmates are considered for parole placement is the same irrespective of their public status. You need to be eligible and how does one become eligible? They need to serve minimum required time and people know that he hasn’t served minimum required time.

Brickz faced his fate for raping a 17-year-old relative back in 2013.

What sparked noise on social media following the ‘resurfacing’ of the image was why the State released a rapist who has not served at least half of his sentence.

Here are some of the comments extracted from Twitter after Brickz was reportedly released from prison.
