Doctors testify in Jub Jub murder trial

2011-07-11 11:41

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.

  • Kgomotso - 2011-07-11 12:11

    mob justice is fitting in this case.

      RobinB - 2011-07-11 12:14


      Linus - 2011-07-11 12:36

      These two defendants and their lawyers appear to have nothing but an attitude of contempt and disdain for their innocent victims; for the victims relatives suffering and the prosecution and court. Now wonder they are in hiding - yes Kgomotso they do deserve mob justice. Not only are they clearly guilty; they have not even shown one ounce of remorse...

  • ash - 2011-07-11 12:17

    plead guilty 2 reduce de sentence

  • theratlady - 2011-07-11 12:22

    His lawyer, like him, must be a man of no concience , morals or common decency. How can you defend someone who clearly is guilty and has not only snuffed out the lives of a bunch of young kids but has ruined the lives these two boys. Jub Jub is a selfish inconciderate coward of a man allowing this case to go on and on whilst the families of the children suffer and have no closure. He should accept that he is guilty and be a man and take his punishment like one.

      Banana_Republic - 2011-07-11 12:30

      Jub Jub places himself up there with the connected elite, he's not being inconsiderate, he, like his fat friend Julius, genuinely believe that different laws apply to them. Punishment is for the common man or woman, if you run with the big dogs like Jub Jub does, a slap on the wrist and an ambasadorial post is what what its expected.

      stuart.steedman - 2011-07-11 13:07

      I hear your point, theratlady, but under our constitution, everyone is allowed fair representation, irrespective of the seriousness of the crime. Your suggest to say otherwise means that people could be locked away with out due process, and in a country as corrupt as South Africa, would you really, really want to give the ANC the power to lock away whoever they felt they liked? As unsavoury as his task is, JubJub's lawyer is simple holding up one of the legs of South Africa Judicial Law.

      tryanything - 2011-07-12 07:01

      Plenty of lawyers like him around....See who is defending the biggest rubbish...

      Ai! Ai! - 2011-07-17 16:22

      It's the money theratlady. Just think how much Zuma's lawyer made defending him! Geld wat stom is, maak reg wat krom is!

  • alicia - 2011-07-11 12:24

    For all that I am,. for all that I have seen happen in this sad world, I can not for the life of me understand why this Bastard's ASs is not in jail for the rest of his life. Why this protracted Court Case. There were so many witnesses, who by the way will never be the same young, carefree people either. The are also scarred. Those poor pitiful teenagers, mowed down in the prime of their life, and other maimed for life. Their family and they need closure. Why do such obvious drunkards, crooks and rubbish stay out of jail, when that is where they so obviously belong. I can not understand this. Our streets are full of them. Does this Jub Jub, although he killed children also have the necessary connections?

  • biskit - 2011-07-11 12:33

    Jub Jub made a very stupid mistake - There a many more like Jub Jub who have done what he has done but have been lucky enough not to hurt anyone in the process. Jub Jub will have to face the consequences if he wants to redeem himself - finish en klaar

      Shazred - 2011-07-11 12:52

      I am sorry it is not a mistake or an accident when you knowingly take drugs and drink and then get in a car and drive. And then add insult to injury have a drag race in a built up area where it is known that kids will be walking home from school. It is murder and that is all there is to it... Did he think it would make him cool in the eyes of the school children, well dude you screwed up because all you managed to do was loose all your self respect, and hopefully the respect of your fans... I think they should let the parents and the community deal with him. He deserves no less then to be shot like the scum he is...

      Kgomotso - 2011-07-11 13:36

      When a person made a mistake he apologies and repend with Jub Jub is the opposite he sees it as part of lime light. When the case started his girlfriend or then girlfriend Kelly Khumalo was pregnant Jub Jub went to say i am going home to spent time with unborn child how on earth do you say such a cold insensitive statement after crashing other people`s children to death and potato state.

  • lollie sue - 2011-07-11 12:35

    This guy is suppose to be rotting in jail already, eish this law

  • Jonathan - 2011-07-11 12:40

    Can you imagine if these two "alleged murderes" were white...... The trial would just be there to appease the people. This trial is just here to show us how the connected and elite get off.....Sheryl Cwele case in point. Nothing has happened there just like with this.

      Ockert - 2011-07-11 13:07

  • cat8fish - 2011-07-11 12:42

      The "Trial" is a farce.

      tryanything - 2011-07-12 07:02

      The trial is on trial.

  • Fakazile - 2011-07-11 13:00

    Why is it taking sooo long for Jub jub to be found guilty and hanged.

  • Ockert - 2011-07-11 13:01

    I get the strange feeling that this "singer" is going to walk a free man.

      Shazred - 2011-07-11 13:03

      I think you right, I have the same feeling...

      lollie sue - 2011-07-11 13:16

      you right, it explains why they dragging like this

  • Ingie - 2011-07-11 13:02

    Why is this dragging on and on and wasting our tax payers money. They did it, they killed the children, they were drunk, they were on drugs, they were speeding so what the heck find them guilty. Why does this have to go on and and on.

      esakoane - 2011-07-11 15:03

  • Linyungandam - 2011-07-12 12:55

    Jub Jub will get away with this coz the mother is a member of ANC;and the delay by court is to calm people's tension down.
