Motive for Jub Jub cop's murder unknown

Johannesburg - The motive for the killing of the investigating officer in the Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye murder trial was not known, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

"No arrests have been made yet... the motive is unknown," Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said.

Major Moses Segapho, 54, was shot and killed in the Angola squatter camp, Kliptown, Soweto on Tuesday night.

He was busy with police investigations when two men shot him as he got out of his car, before running away.

Segapho was the investigating officer in the murder trial of Maarohonye and Themba Tshabalala. They are charged with murder and reckless or negligent driving after a car accident on March 8 last year, in which four schoolchildren died and two were seriously injured.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala crashed into the group of schoolchildren in Mdlalose Street, Protea North, allegedly while racing their Mini Coopers and while drunk and on drugs.
