Well-dressed Jub Jub in court
Johannesburg - Cross-examination of a police officer who copied a cellphone video, showing Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Temba Tshabalala allegedly drag racing, onto a DVD, continued in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Following a request from State prosecutor Raymond Mathenjwa on Tuesday, Magistrate Brian Nemabidi ordered that the man not be identified for "security reasons".
The officer is from the crime intelligence cyber unit.
Proceedings were adjourned early on Tuesday for files containing information of his making the DVD to be brought to court.
Maarohanye's lawyer Ike Motloung accused the witness of "speaking in circles" and also questioned if the speed of a video could be altered.
In Tuesday's cross-examination, he accused the officer of "lying" and "playing games".
"You never thought I'd ask for the file," Motloung said.
The footage belongs to an 18-year-old witness testifying against the two men. Ntokozo Mahlangu previously said she refused to give the defence her cellphone's memory card, as it had private data on it.
Sitting in the dock on Wednesday, Maarohanye and Tshabalala, both well-dressed, put their heads down and closed their eyes from time to time.
The pair 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 were killed and two others suffered severe injuries, including brain damage.
