Judgment could affect 'Jub Jub' case
Johannesburg - A judgment handed down in the Eastern Cape High Court could affect a similar case involving musician Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and his friend Themba Tshabalala, the SABC reported on Wednesday.
The court found a motorist who killed three children in an accident last year, guilty of murder.
The province's director of public prosecutions, Lungi Mahlati, told the broadcaster the facts in the case were almost the same as those in the case of Maarohanye and Tshabalala.
Maarohanye and Tshabalala face charges of murder, attempted murder and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
They were allegedly drag-racing when one of their Mini Coopers ploughed into a group of school children in Mdlalose Street, in Protea North, on March 8 last year.
Four children died and two others suffered severe injuries, including brain damage.
