Witness tells of Jub Jub video
Johannesburg - A witness who recorded a video of murder-accused Molema Jub Jub Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala testified in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Ntokozo Mahlangu, 18, told the court she was standing on the corner of Mdlalose Street with her friends when she saw the two men racing.
She said two cars were driving parallel to each other. That was when she took out her cellphone and started filming.
Mahlangu said 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.
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.
