2012-10-16 12:10

Johannesburg - Musician Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye has been found guilty of killing four schoolchildren while drag racing in Soweto in March 2010.
The guilty verdict was handed down at the end a long four-day judgment on Tuesday in the Protea Magistrate’s Court.

Maarohanye’s co-accused Themba Tshabalala was also found guilty.

Four schoolchildren were killed and two were seriously injured.

Last week, as Magistrate Brian Nemavhidi read out his judgment, family members of the schoolchildren broke down and were seen comforting each other.

    At last !

  • natalie.truter - 2012-10-16 12:15

    I sincerely hope that they are sent away for life. Fined harshly and acknowledge that they did this and have to face the consequences of their actions. I hope they are made an example of to others, who, like them believe they own the road!

    Hoorrrayyy...Hopefully a stiff sentence - like 4 life sentences without possibility of parole.

  • camp.j - 2012-10-16 12:16

      xoli.zwane.79 - 2012-10-16 13:41

      True and very sad.

  • isabel.ashe.7 - 2012-10-16 12:22

    THEY THINK FAST CARS R TOYS.... PAY BACK TIME...25 years for each child.

  • richard.zanner - 2012-10-16 12:23

    And now comes appeal after appeal. They were fancy pants doing drugs and acting irresponsibly. I am sure they are sorry but sadly they are only sad for their own sorry Ar$#es and not those kids who now lie dead and never had the opportunity to live. Let them rot in jail. Well done to the prosecuting team and the Presiding Officer.

  • bmaestro - 2012-10-16 12:26

    now someone tell Jub Jub that he is going to be somebody's bitch in jail

  • wayne.mongie - 2012-10-16 12:26

    The artist formerly known as Jub Jub will now be known as Lube Lube. Enjoy prison, somehow I don't think they're going to let you go home when you hurt your penis this time.

    Amen!!!! Too.

  • thunder.clap.587 - 2012-10-16 12:33

    They would be serving two years of the sentence if they pleaded guilty in 2010,now that their money is out,their lawyers forsaken them and they going down.

  • thapelomat - 2012-10-16 12:33

    Goood,the verdict?

  • di.hingley - 2012-10-16 12:36

    Thank you God, justice done!

  • benny.backward.1 - 2012-10-16 12:38

    Neo, seconded.

  • liz.rudy.3 - 2012-10-16 12:45

    Guess his next song will be Jailhouse Rock LOL Justice has been served

  • mrp721 - 2012-10-16 12:49

    Good, now they must go to jail for a long long time!!! Jub Jub thought he would get away with it just because he was a "celeb", shame now all he'll be is a "has been"...

  • shaun.clark.1272 - 2012-10-16 13:37

    ... more than 2,5 years after wasting our time and the public's resources on their pathetic defences and attempts at dodging their fate. I hope the sentence serves as some comfort for the families of those who lost their lives as a result of this utter stupidity, but absolutely zero sympathy here for any of the accused.

  • xoli.zwane.79 - 2012-10-16 13:44

    I will only be happy when the same judgement is passed to Sibusiso Langa( the one who killed 5 joggers in Mildrand) this is when I will say " Justice is done"

  • musa.mohapi.3 - 2012-10-16 14:00

  • stephen.j.dickson.3 - 2012-10-16 15:01
