Cop cross-examined in Jub Jub trial

2011-07-15 13:06
Johannesburg - The murder trial of Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala continued in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Friday.

They were allegedly drag racing when one of their Mini Coopers ploughed into a group of schoolchildren, killing four boys and leaving two others injured.

They face charges of murder, attempted murder and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Defence lawyer Ike Motloung cross-examined Major Moses Segapo about two passengers who were supposedly in one of the cars at the time of the crash.

Asked whether it was wrong for a witness to consult a lawyer before making a statement to the police, Segapo replied: "Never in my career did witnesses consult attorneys before making a statement to the police."

"They [the passengers] are not your witnesses," Motloung put it to him, adding that neither the police nor the State knew whether the two would testify.

Maarohanye took notes of the proceedings in the dock.
