Cosas: Boycott Jub Jub's music

Johannesburg - The Congress of SA Students (Cosas) called on radio stations on Thursday to boycott the music of hip hop artist Jub Jub, who has received death threats since a drag racing accident that killed four children.

"They must stop playing Jub Jub. We are finished with him," Cosas provincial chairperson Ntsako Mogobe said.

"We are sick of students being killed by these so-called role models."

Mogobe was speaking outside the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto where Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala were appearing for a bail application.

Jub Jub last year released the album Fresh Air which received rave reviews and featured songs like Jerusalema, U Can and Shammbula.

Mogobe repeated the death threats that had been made against the pair since the March 8 accident in which four school children were killed and two injured while Jub Jub and Tshabalala were apparently racing each other.

Death threats

"Cosas will not surrender to anyone. We are very disciplined students," Mogobe said, but added: "You give Jub Jub bail, we kill him, we don't surrender on that one".

Mogobe also called on the MEC for education to give children time off when the pair appears in court.

"We also call on the MEC of education to, every time this criminal appears in court, to call a non-school day."

Five school children were arrested on Wednesday for public violence outside the court when they threw stones at police cars.

Mogobe lamented the police's use of rubber bullets to control the crowds.

"There is nothing different between them and apartheid policemen," he said.

Jub Jub and Tshabalala face four charges of murder, two of attempted murder and one each of reckless driving and drunken driving.

The court heard on Wednesday that both of them were high on cocaine and morphine at the time of the accident, and that Tshabalala's blood alcohol level was twice over the legal limit.
