Johannesburg - Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye has secured the services of high-profile lawyer Rudi Krause.

Krause defended Bees Roux, the Blue Bulls rugby player who received a suspended sentence following the death of Tshwane metro police officer Ntshimane Mogale.

Maarohanye's spokesperson, Cino Shearer, said they changed lawyers "due to the fact that the current lawyer which we have appointed has more experience in dealing with Schedule 6 offences, which is what Maarohanye is facing".

Maarohanye and his co-accused, Themba Tshabalala, were found guilty on four counts of murder and two of attempted murder.

They will be sentenced on Friday.

Shearer said Maarohanye was hoping Krause would get him a lighter sentence.

"As the court records have indicated, it was Thabalala’s car that bumped the school children and not his car."
