Jub Jub case postponed

2010-10-18 09:03

The murder trial of hip-hop artist Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala was postponed to December in the Protea Magistrates Court today.

The court heard that Ike Motloung was busy in a high court as an acting judge and could therefore not represent his musician client.

The case was set down for four days, beginning December 13.

The two men face four murder charges following an accident in March which killed four schoolchildren and critically injured two others.

Their Mini Coopers veered off the road in Soweto, allegedly while they were dragracing, and allegedly while they were under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

A small group of youth protested outside the court and the gates to the courthouse were closed.
