Johannesburg - Musician Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala are expected to learn their fate in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Magistrate Brian Nemavhidi postponed the matter on Friday to avoid a disjuncture in the judgment.

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

Prince Mohube, Mlungisi Cwayi, Andile Mthombeni, and Phomello Masemola, were killed. Frank Mlambo and Fumani Mushwana were seriously injured.

They are charged with murder, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and failing to asses the injuries of the victims.

Both have pleaded not guilty.

Nemavhidi started handing down judgment on Wednesday and concluded summing up the evidence of witnesses on Friday.

Family members and friends of the school children, and of Maarohanye and Tshabalala, were present at all three days of judgment and expected to return on Tuesday.

Mohube's family told reporters they were relieved the trial, that started in 2010, was coming to an end.
