Entertainment News: South Africa: R Kelly concert fraud case’s posponed

Entertainment March 17, 2016

R. Kelly has been quite a regular in South Africa, since the world cup in 2010 (held in South Africa), in 2013 the 3 time Grammy award winner, came to South African for his Single Ladies Tour.

The former head of the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA), Andile Lungisa, took an advantage of the self proclaimed R&B King’s star, and a case was opened against him and his 3 co-accused (his wife Ursula Sali , Thabo Shogole and Xolisile Guqaza (Business Associates)) as they defrauded the Department of Arts and Culture of R2.5-million.

They had said this would cover fees for the appearance of the super-star at Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Day concert at the FNB stadium.

However,  R Kelly, who was in South Africa, on tour at the time, was not aware of Andile’s arrangement with his business associates – The ‘Step in the name of love‘ singer, left the country without performing at the FNB stadium as it was expected by fans and Department of Arts and Culture.

The matter had been postponed ( for representations to be made to the office of the NDPP) in the past, and yet again this for  the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) to make a decision on new developments of the case.

However, the NDPP has not received representations according to Ronel Dookun, the state prosecutor.

It had been said by the Defence lawyer Mthetheleli Lindwa, that they are not delaying the matter, however, they are merely excising their right and so to tackle the issue in all angles.

The postponed dates are not yet revealed to the public, it’s been 3 years, and the drag linger on.
