Johannesburg - The two doctors, who treated the boys who were injured in the accident involving Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and co-accused Temba Tshabalala, testified in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Dr Asab Mushtaq, who examined Fumani Mushwana, read out a medical report he had written.

Mushtaq was a trauma doctor at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. He said Fumani had to have a blood transfusion. He had injured his spleen and had lacerations on his leg.

Dr Vinod Goolab, a neurosurgeon at Chris Hani Baragwanath, examined Frank Mlambo.

He said Mlambo was admitted with a severe head injury and swelling in the brain.

He was admitted on March 8 and discharged from hospital on May 19. Goolab said Mlambo was unable to speak when he was discharged. Mlambo had a brain injury score of three out of 10.

The brain injury had an effect on his speech, memory and social skills. Goolab said Mlambo's life expectancy had decreased and it was unlikely that he would fully recover.

Defence lawyer Ike Motloung asked Goolab if he was saying that Mlambo could not make a full recovery.

Goolab said it was not impossible but it was unlikely.

Four teenagers were killed when one of their Mini Coopers ploughed into a group of schoolchildren, while they were allegedly drag racing in Mdlalose Street, Protea North, on March 8 last year.

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

Last month, parents of the two injured boys gave emotional testimonies about how the accident had affected their sons.

Joel Mushwana told the court his son Fumani suffered from memory loss. Martha Tinyiko Mlambo, Frank's mother, told the court her son had to learn to eat, walk and talk again.
