It’s been barely three weeks since Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye was sentenced to prison and already rumours are making the rounds that he had tried to commit suicide.

The Star today reported the rumours about Maaroohanye (32), stating that “rumours abounded this week that Maarohanye, who is serving 25 years’ imprisonment, had tried to kill himself”.

His spokesperson, Cino Searer, this afternoon rubbished the claims. He said: “Molemo is well and in high spirits and has not tried to commit suicide”.

“He is keeping a journal on his time in prison and he is focusing on trying to change the lives of other prisoners.”

Maarohanye is serving time at the Johannesburg Central Prison, also known as Sun City.

The convicted rapper – with Themba Tshabalala – was found guilty of murder, drag racing and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Also dousing the rumours, speaking on behalf of Gauteng correctional services, Ofentse Morwane said: “The allegations are baseless and unfounded. It is clear there are some people out there who are trying to create an unnecessary and unwarranted hype around his incarceration and it’s unfair.

“The fact that he has been handed a prison sentence should be punishment enough.”
