Jub Jub gets 20 years

Watch as relatives of the schoolchildren Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye killed and injured in his car accident are upset over the musician's jail sentence.WATCH

Johannesburg - The Protea Magistrate's Court was filling up on Thursday morning ahead of convicted killer Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye's appearance.

Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala intend to appeal their 25-year jail terms.

Wearing shackles, Tshabalala entered the courtroom wearing blue jeans, an orange shirt and brown jacket. He was followed by Maarohanye, also in shackles, wearing black trousers and a white shirt.

Proceedings were slightly delayed because magistrate Brian Nemavhidi dealt with other matters before concentrating on the appeal.

On 5 December 2012 the same court sentenced them to 20 years imprisonment each for murder, and four years for attempted murder.

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

They were drag-racing in Protea North on 8 March 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.

The court found the men guilty on 16 October.

The relatives of the victims and Maarohanye's friends were present in court.
