Jub Jub murder trial to resume

2012-02-20 11:10
Johannesburg - The murder trial of musician Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye and co-accused Themba Tshabalala was due to resume in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday morning.

State prosecutor Raymond Mathenjwa said proceedings were however delayed because Maarohanye's legal representative Ike Motloung was running late.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala face charges of murder, attempted murder and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

They allegedly crashed into a group of schoolchildren while racing along Mdlalose Drive between Protea North and Protea Glen. Four of the children died and two were severely injured.

When the trial was postponed in December, Maarohanye was being cross-examined by Mathenjwa.

He has denied that his car was the one that ploughed into the children.
