Johannesburg - Lawyer Ike Motloung will continue to represent Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye in his murder trial, the Protea Magistrate's Court heard on Monday.

Motloung told the court in August his client had financial problems and that he could not proceed under such circumstances.

Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala were allegedly drag-racing when one of their Mini Coopers ploughed into a group of schoolchildren in Mdlalose Street, Protea North in Soweto, on March 8, 2010.

It was not immediately known why Motloung changed his mind about representing Maarohanye.

Cross-examination

On Monday, he continued to cross-examine former Protea police station commander Major Moses Segapo about two boys who were allegedly passengers in one of the cars. He wanted to know why a statement was not obtained from the two boys when they came to the police station.

Segapo said: "I believe you coached them, you prepared them for the statement."

One of the boys mentioned Motloung's name when they could not explain the speed at which the two cars were travelling before the accident, Segapo said.

"One of them said 'that is why they wanted Ike to come with us'."

Segapo told the court he had listened to the boys and wanted to speak to the prosecutor about their intention to submit a statement.

"I listened to them, and when they mentioned Ike I decided to consult a prosecutor."

Heads bowed

Maarohanye and Tshabalala arrived in court in black suits and sat with their heads bowed while Motloung cross-examined Segapo. They face charges of murder, attempted murder and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Andile Mtombeni, 19, Phomelelo Masemelo, 16, Mlungisi Cwayi and Prince Mahube, both aged 17, were killed as they were walking home from school.

Fumani Mushwana and Frank Mlabo, aged 17 and 18 respectively at the time, suffered serious injuries, including brain damage.

The trial continues.
