Jub Jub sentencing

Kwaito star Jub Jub appeared in the Protea Magistrate's Court for sentencing. See all the pictures.

Johannesburg - Family members of the schoolchildren killed and injured in the car crash involving musician Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye were in court as his sentencing got under way on Wednesday morning.

Courtroom six of the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto began filling up ahead of the sentencing of Maarohanye and co-accused Themba Tshabalala.

Family members were seen wearing white golf T-shirts with the names of the children involved in the crash.

Guilty

On October 16, the court found Maarohanye and Tshabalala guilty on four counts of murder and two of attempted murder, using drugs, racing on a public road, and driving under the influence of drugs.

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

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were denied bail after judgment was handed down.

Maarohanye approached the South Gauteng High Court on 7 November against the decision to have his bail revoked. The court ruled against the musician.

On Friday, attorney Rudi Krause, for Maarohanye, applied for a postponement, saying he was recently appointed and did not have enough time to prepare his pre-sentencing report.
