Jub Jub appeal fails

2012-11-07 12:34

Johannesburg - An appeal for an extension of bail by convicted murderer, singer Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye, was denied on Wednesday by the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg.

Judge J Koetzee said he agreed with the Protea Magistrate's Court's finding that Maarohanye had failed to prove exceptional circumstances to support the extension of his bail.

"There appears to be little, if any, supporting grounds advanced by him," said Koetzee.

Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala were found guilty of four counts of murder and two of attempted murder by the Protea Magistrate's Court on October 16.

Four school children were killed and two were seriously injured in an accident while Maarohanye and Tshabalala were drag-racing in Soweto in March 2010.

Sentencing is scheduled to take place on November 30.

    Justice will finaly be served

    Now I ask, why does it take so long to read the verdit(a week I think) then another 2months to sentence. Like come on "You're guilty 15yrs" simple people like ten minutes then next case... Oh wait then the judge has to do more and charge less :/

      Judges get paid a flat salary, not per hour! The Judge is reading all the bleeding heart, warm and fuzzy reports from social workers, psychologists etc to arrive at an appropriate sentence. Personally I'd just say "Life" and be done with it but hey, I'm not a respected Judge

    This is Sad

      camp.j - 2012-11-07 12:56

      Very sad indeed, sad that he was allowed out of prison for a day to appeal. It's now time to sit and think about all the families you have wrecked.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-07 13:45

      Yet I feel no sadness.

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-11-07 13:51

      Not as sad as the day all the innocent victims were laid to rest!

    Can someone describe murder/capable homicide pertaining to Jub-jub's case.

      matli.mokoena - 2012-11-07 13:18

      murder is wen u intended to kill, calpable homicide is wen u neva intended but ur negligence resulted in death of another. in jub jub's case, the requirement of 'intent' (according to the law and not the english literal meaning) was met and therefore he was convicted of murder and not calpable homicide.

  • John - 2012-11-07 13:13

    In all fairness you are supposed to serve time though it would not bring back the kids that you unitentionally killed and injured. Accept that you have wronged ask for forgiveness from the Families and God and move on Chana.

  • nhlapop - 2012-11-07 13:19

    Justice has been served. However this wont bring back those who lost Their lives and nothing will take away the pain that their parents going thru now. Nothing beats mothers love. Jub Jub might serve life sentence in prison but that won’t bring back the life of those children. Our future leaders.

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-11-07 13:19

    He was allowed to be free whilst he case was being heard, why must he get bail, he really did'nt have any remorse for what he did only when he thought it might earn him a few brownie points. Well JuJu I hope you are haunted every night of your life by the screams of those poor kids you killed.

  • john.lekay2 - 2012-11-07 13:19

    jub jub my what did u expect we know that u are a flight risk,it will be all over in 3 weeks hang in there

  • okuhle.ngada - 2012-11-07 13:21

    I hope he gets sentenced life in prison, no parole.

  • gabi.ndebele - 2012-11-07 13:22

    Amazing how things work, they waited two years for justice and he thought he could mess with that? Shame

  • okuhle.ngada - 2012-11-07 13:22

    I hope he gets sentenced to life in prison, with no parole.

  • luvo.luvos - 2012-11-07 13:25

    I think its getting hot at the slammer with Big Bubba breathing down his butt everywhere he goes. The Big One is giving him sleepless nights and he hasn't even been sentenced yet.

  • lebo.bucibo - 2012-11-07 13:26

    Bad what he did and he is not the only one who does this. He was the unlucky one to crash during the sin and being famous made it even worse. I see hoodlum drivers every time I drive to Soweto but it just happens that it is not their extremely rare and unlucky "kill 4 kids" day.

      robert.ackerman.391 - 2012-11-07 14:09

      Its not just in Soweto its every where in SA.

  • flysouth - 2012-11-07 13:27

    The very idea of a CONVICTED MURDERER being allowed out on bail is totally ludicrous! You just couldn't make this stuff up!

  • marilyn.docherty.9 - 2012-11-07 13:34

    Jub Jub and friend deserve a LIFE SENTENCE!

  • dragonfire47 - 2012-11-07 13:35
