Disgraced hip-hop artist Katlego "Jub Jub" Molemo Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala have been granted parole.

Correctional Services Spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo confirmed the parole placement which came into effect on Thursday.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala were initially sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by the Protea Magistrate’s Court in Soweto after their cars ploughed into a group of school children – killing four in 2012.

The sentence was later reduced to 10 years, two of which were suspended.

Nxumalo says, after both had served four years, one month and one day behind bars and participated in correctional programmes - both parolees were considered suitable candidates for parole by the Correctional Supervision and Parole Board.
