“I must place it on record that we have received further particulars which we had requested, they were not satisfactory, but I had a chat with my learned colleagues, and they said there’s nothing further that they can provide, therefore we will have to work with what we have,” said Baloyi.

State Prosecutor Agnes Bezuidenhout said that they have concluded their investigation, but are not opposing a postponement.

“I have indicated to the defence that we have given them all the information that we could, and he said they will request for a further postponement. As the state we are not opposing that, however, the investigation to this matter has been completed a long time ago, the defence has been provided with an annexure to the charges, “she said.

The matter has been postponed to 12 March.

According to Sunday World in September, the rapper is expected to argue – among other things – that Amanda du-Pont would have reported him whilst in jail if he had indeed sexually assaulted her.

In court papers, the musician said his romantic relationship with the former Skeem Saam actress was a happy one until she found out through the papers in 2009 that he was cheating on her with Kelly Khumalo. He claims he later only heard from her when he was serving jail time for culpable homicide between 2012 and 2017.
