Jub Jub guilty of murder

2012-10-16 16:03

Watch scenes from inside the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto where Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and his co-accused were found guilty. WATCH

Johannesburg - Convicted murderer Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye said on Tuesday he was hurt by the deaths and injuries of six school boys.

"I'm really hurt sir, but I will leave that [sentence] up to the justice system," Maarohanye said during an urgent bail application in the Protea Magistrate's Court after he was found guilty.

"I understand the reaction to my actions. I'm happy this [trial] reached the end and that the families can move forward... Justice has run its course."

Musician Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala were found guilty of four counts of murder, two of attempted murder, use of drugs, racing on a public road, and driving under the influence of drugs.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were drag-racing in Protea North on 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 left permanently brain damaged.

Outside the court, Maarohanye's uncle said no one is above the law.

"Things are not looking good for us, but what can you do?" asked Solomon Tsimile.

He said the Maarohanye family had requested several times to meet with the families of the deceased.

"It's how we do things in the African culture," he said.

"We are still intending to meet them even though, so far, they have refused. We want to express our sympathy."

Tsimile is related to Maarohanye's mother, whose absence throughout the two-year trial had been noted.

He refused to disclose her whereabouts or why she had not been present.

Sentencing will take place on 30 November.
