Johannesburg - A Soweto court on Tuesday was packed in anticipation of the judgment in the murder trial of musician Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye and co-accused Themba Tshabalala.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were allegedly drag-racing in Protea North in March 8 2010 when they crashed into a group of schoolchildren. Prince Mohube, Mlungisi Cwayi, Andile Mthombeni, and Phomello Masemola, were killed.

Frank Mlambo and Fumani Mushwana were seriously injured.

A court official asked people in the second and third rows of the court to make space for the families and friends of the schoolchildren.

Ahead of the judgment, those who were unable to find seats filled all the standing room in the court while others waited outside to catch a glimpse of the accused as they arrived.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala are charged with murder, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and failing to asses the injuries of the victims.

Both have pleaded not guilty.
