Lawyers don't pitch for Jub Jub case

2012-02-29 17:15
Johannesburg - The murder trial of Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala was postponed by the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Proceedings will resume on Thursday.

The lawyers of both accused failed to arrive in court on Wednesday.

Prosecutor Raymond Mathenjwa told the court that Maarohanye's lawyer Ike Motloung had another case at the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg.

It had been expected to finish by 11:00, but he had not arrived by noon and his cellphone was switched off.

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

They were allegedly racing their Mini Coopers along Mdlalose Drive in Protea North on March 8 2010, when one of the cars ploughed into a group of school pupils.

Four schoolboys were killed and two others were severely injured.
