Delays as Jub Jub trial resumes

2011-05-27 10:47
Johannesburg - The trial of murder accused Molema Jub Jub Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala was delayed in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Tshabalala's defence lawyer, Mlungiseleni Soviti was running late, the court heard.

The court was expected to see a cellphone video recording by an 18-year-old witness of Maarohanye and Tshabalala allegedly "racing".

On Wednesday, Ntokozo Mahlangu testified that she was standing on the corner of Mdlalose Street with her friends on when she saw the two men's cars.

She told the court she recognised Jub Jub as one of the drivers.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were allegedly drag-racing when one of their Mini Coopers ploughed into a group of school children on Mdlalose Drive in Protea North on March 8, last year.

Four children died in the accident and two others suffered severe injuries, including brain damage.

Maarohanya and Tshabalala face charges of murder and attempted murder and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
