Jub Jub: Urine samples tampered with

2012-02-20 14:45

Cape Town - Musician Molemo Jub-Jub Maarohanye on Monday claimed his urine samples were tampered with and blamed his co-accused, Themba Tshabalala, for a deadly accident in Soweto in 2010.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala are on trial in the Protea Magistrate’s Court for murder and attempted murder in the Protea Magistrate’s Court.

The pair allegedly crashed into a group of schoolchildren while racing in Soweto on March 8 2010. Four of the children died and two others were seriously injured.

Maarohanye told the court on Monday that his co-accused crashed into him and the pupils, EWN reported.

Maarohanye has denied that his car hit the children and claimed his car smashed into a tree on the side of the road.

The musician also claimed he was a victim.

Cocaine, morphine in blood

He was at pains to say that Tshabalala did not plan to hit anyone and that it was just an accident.

It also emerged earlier in the trial that the two accused tested positive for cocaine and morphine.

But Maarohanye told the court on Monday that he believes his urine sample might have been tampered with.

"I'm saying it’s highly, highly, highly possible that our urine was tampered with," he said during cross-examination.

He could not say who was to blame.

Maarohanye told prosecutor Raymond Mathenjwa that he had been taking tablets for depression prior to the accident.

This was why common medicinal substances were found in his urine sample.

The trial continues.

      TAKE THE PUNISHMENT YOU LILLY LIVERED SMIDGEN OF BLOWFISH SH*T!!!! Big tough guy, thinks he is the coolest thing since the multicoloured 'kuduzela', now the cowardly little waste of dna is wetting himself and trying everything in the book to deny the charges against him. Typical. He is probably the kind of moron that likes to torture and rape 80 year old women, it's about as far as his courage will go.

    Jub Jub couldn't lie any more, even if he tried. Go straight to jail.

    If you are so innocent, I dare you to walk around that area and explain to the folks who else it was that killed their kids. You and your drag racing friend can wander around with loud hailers calling the folks to a meeting to explain their mistake and what nice guys you are innocently drag racing in their 'hood!! Go for it ma man you're out on bail!!

    A very likely story, why only now is this claim being made about urine test. Can he produce the script for the medicine, so as to determine the ingredients. Obiviously there has been a fall out between the two accused and we will no doubt hear the opposite from Tshabalala.

    Dude, you are guilty, be a man about it, own up, apologise and take your punishment like a man. Your singing career is over anyways. Redeem yourself by taking responsibility for your irresponsible action. Come on man, stop wasting my hard earned money by dragging this case out.
