The murder convictions of hip hop artist Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala were overturned in the High Court in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

The sentences would be converted to culpable homicide. The judge explained that Jub Jub is a famous musician, it was his first conviction and he is a father of one child: "In our view a sentence of 10 years of imprisonment is what is fair, with two years suspended." The new 10 year sentence is looked at from the 16th of October 2012.
