Technical problems halt Jub Jub trial

2011-05-25 16:02
Johannesburg - The trial of murder-accused Molema Jub Jub Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala was postponed in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Magistrate Brian Nemabidi said he was postponing the case to Friday because of technical difficulties.

Proceedings were delayed for over two hours so State prosecutor Raymond Mathenjwa could sort out technical difficulties with a video to be shown in court.

Earlier, 18-year-old witness Ntokozo Mahlangu testified that she took out her cellphone and started recording when she saw cars driving parallel to one another.

She had been standing at the corner of Mdlalose street with friends at the time.

Recognised Jub Jub

She told the court she recognised Jub Jub as one of the drivers.

She gave a copy of the video to an unidentified journalist the night of the accident.

Police received the video in July last year, she said.

Maarohanya and Tshabalala face charges of murder and 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 schoolchildren on Mdlalose Drive in Protea North on March 8 last year.

Four children died in the accident and two others suffered severe injuries, including brain damage.
