Jub Jub crashed into kerb - witness
Johannesburg - Musician Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye crashed into a kerb to avoid a collision on 8 March 2010, a witness told the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala are accused of ploughing into a group of schoolchildren while drag racing along Mdlalose Drive in Soweto.
Four children were killed and two others were seriously injured.
Benjamin Maseko told the court that Tshabalala was trying to overtake Maarohanye on that day, causing him to crash into a kerb.
"The blue car hit the grey car [Maarohanye's car]. I say this because the blue car was the one that recklessly appeared behind it and swerved towards it," Maseko told the court.
Maseko had been transporting schoolchildren in a kombi that day.
Under cross-examination, Maseko said he did not see the actual accident.
"I saw the collision, but the point of impact I didn't see."
Maarohanye and Tshabalala face four counts of murder, two of attempted murder, and reckless and negligent driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
