Johannesburg - Hip hop artist Molemo Maarohanye, known as Jub Jub, and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala tested positive for morphine and cocaine after their drag race that killed four school children, a Johannesburg court heard on Wednesday.

"His urine test came back positive for cocaine and morphine," investigating officer Inspector Mpho Matshidiso told the Protea Magistrate's Court.

This was after State prosecutor Liezl van Jaarsveld asked him about Maarohanye, and he repeated the same statement for Tshabalala: "His urine test came back positive for cocaine and morphine."

But Matshidiso said tests showed that Maarohanye did not have any alcohol in his blood. Tshabalala however had alcohol in his blood.

Bail

The State was arguing that the pair should not be granted bail. Van Jaarsveld also referred to media reports on the accident, including an article in the Sowetan newspaper headlined, "release him and we'll kill him".

Defence lawyer Ike Motloung then started cross-examining Matshidiso, arguing the two friends should be granted bail.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala face murder charges after four school pupils were killed and two critically injured when the two crashed their Mini Coopers, allegedly while racing in Soweto last week.

They face four charges of murder, two of attempted murder and one each of reckless and drunken driving.

Hundreds of school pupils protested against them being granted bail outside the court.
