Convicted murderer Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye's application for bail was denied by the Protea Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Maarohanye was asking the court to grant him bail, pending the appeal against his murder conviction and sentence.

The petition to appeal was filed in the High Court in Johannesburg in March.

Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala were each sentenced in December last year to 20 years imprisonment for murder and four years imprisonment for attempted murder.

For use of drugs, driving under the influence of drugs, and racing on a public road, they got a year for each count.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were drag-racing in Protea North on March 8, 2010, when they crashed into a group of schoolboys.

Prince Mohube, Mlungisi Cwayi, Andile Mthombeni, and Phomello Masemola were killed.

Frank Mlambo and Fumani Mushwana were left permanently brain damaged.
