Singer Brickz to fire rape case lawyer

Singer Brickz to fire rape case lawyer
Published: 2014 January 19 08:31:46 (8638 Views)
Kwaito star Brickz aka Sipho Ndlovu, is reportedly planning to fire Isaac Mokgobi, the lawyer who represented him from the onset of his rape case.

Sunday Sun claims that he is about conclude a deal with a top-notch law firm to represent him during his rape trial.



But for the deal to be finalised his team has to pay an upfront legal fee of R25 000 followed by another R25 000 to be paid after the court appearance.
 
Sources close to the musician told Sunday Sun that Brickz believes Mokgobi won't be able to deliver the desirable outcome because he's incompetent and has a history of not winning rape cases.
 
"He doesn't consult them or engage on the strategy to be used to win a case. He doesn't listen to them. They're in the dark and he seems not to care about the case and our boy. They wanted to have the girl to be counselled by an independent clinic because they believe the report might be subjective towards the victim as it is funded by the state – but Mokgobi is not acting or arranging for that to happen," said a friend.
 
Sunday Sun has also learnt that Mokgobi has been representing Brickz voluntarily, hoping to cash in on the legal suit that was to follow after Brickz wins the case.
 
A source close to the case told the paper that Mokgobi was only acting under the instructions of Kalawa Jazmee, the record label that Brickz is signed under and everything was agreed with them on how Mokgobi's legal fees would be paid.
 
"Now it's just a matter of money clearing and they are getting rid of him. It's high time they do so," added another concerned friend.
 
Sunday Sun also claims that Brickz was talked into this matter by another man who was once represented by Mokgobi but was found guilty of rape and sent to prison.
 
"The guy came out recently and was shocked to hear that his failed lawyer was now representing Brickz. He went straight to him to suggest that if Brickz wants to win the case, he should drop Mokgobi, said the source.
 
When contacted for comment, Mokgobi said: "I have no idea about that but if that's the case then, I don't know what they want because I've done the best I could on the case. Unless if they expected miracles.
 
"If they're not satisfied with my services, they can always find another attorney to represent them and I will focus on other cases that I'm currently busy with," he said.

"But he'd have to pay me my legal fees for the bail and trial."
 
Brickz refused to say anything about the matter. Instead he asked: "Who told you about that? I'd rather not comment on that."
