Johannesburg - Hip-hop star Molemo Maarohanye, better known as Jub Jub, and co-accused Themba Tshabalala appeared on charges of murder in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

This came after the two allegedly hit and killed four pupils and injured two during a drag-racing accident in Soweto on Monday.

They are facing four charges of murder, two of attempted murder, reckless driving and drunken driving.

They appeared before Magistrate Brian Nemavhadi, who postponed the matter to March 17.

The pair, who remained in custody, will then apply for bail.

Pelted with stones

A police van transporting the two after their appearance was pelted with stones by angry students, who filled the streets in front of the court.

Some carried placards reading: "No bail, we want justice."

Miyelani Shabangu, a friend of one of the deceased pupils, said students wanted to see the hip-hop star and his friend go to jail for a very long time for what they allegedly did.

"We are not happy at all, he should be punished for what he did. We want him to go to jail for a very long time," said Shabangu.

"I'm still hurting, Andile (Mthombeni) was a very good friend of mine."

Sixteen-year-old Mthombeni was one of the four pupils killed in the accident.

The other three were Prince Mohube, Mlungisi Cwayi and Phomello Masemola.

Two other pupils were seriously injured in the crash.
