Motive for Jub Jub cop's murder unknown

2011-12-08 07:23

Johannesburg - The motive for the killing of the investigating officer in the Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye murder trial was not known, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

"No arrests have been made yet... the motive is unknown," Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said.

Major Moses Segapho, 54, was shot and killed in the Angola squatter camp, Kliptown, Soweto on Tuesday night.

He was busy with police investigations when two men shot him as he got out of his car, before running away.

Segapho was the investigating officer in the murder trial of Maarohonye and Themba Tshabalala. They are charged with murder and reckless or negligent driving after a car accident on March 8 last year, in which four schoolchildren died and two were seriously injured.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala crashed into the group of schoolchildren in Mdlalose Street, Protea North, allegedly while racing their Mini Coopers and while drunk and on drugs.

    come on,this is a accident here.

      Ibhubesi - 2011-12-08 07:37

      Someone should put the murder stats in front of the ANC and ask the most important question of all, a question South Africans all should be asking. How much longer can we be in denial that the death sentence did stop a lot of people from killing. Our judicial system has turned murder into a habit, because there is no consequences for killing.

      Well said ibhubesi

      Where was mama Jackie ? "a hit i tell you, a very palpable hit ..."

      procold2 - 2011-12-08 08:26

      maybe a hit,this case is drawing out to long the judge must sentence these two they are going to appeal anyway,this murder should be priority no 1 today and if a connection found death sentence, the gov must reinstate it now, call a vote

      reinier.van.den.bergh - 2011-12-08 08:52

      Definitely a hit. Jub Jub is well connected.

      fargone - 2011-12-08 10:17

      Yes, I agree with the death penalty, BUT can you imagine what sort of bribes would be made to get the "guilty" off death row. In addition, what sort of guarantee do we have that the death penalty would not be abused by the authorities. China, it seems has gone this route, the number of death sentences passed out per annum is huge in that country.

      I agree with you

      Fredster69 - 2011-12-08 14:11 you speak like a lion!!!

  • Ian - 2011-12-08 07:30

    listen baby killer, the evidence against you is stacked pretty high, now take that rubbish you call music and plenty of vaseline and rot in hell

  • Larry - 2011-12-08 07:39

    Very suspicious. Jubjub may just be more than a baby killer?

      swonas - 2011-12-08 07:52

      his apearance did not go that well, he contradicted himself and his bench, he thought by taking this guy out he'll be sorted, but the arm of the law???? the must get the best team to investigate this murder, we dont need scum to touch the hardworking men in blue!

  • Mlungisi - 2011-12-08 07:41

    Wrong place at the wrong time..... RIP fella

      Marion - 2011-12-08 08:07

      @Mlungisi - I agree with you. I am sure it is purely coincidental that it has happened during this trial as many of our cops are murdered each year. RIP Major.

      thabo.tebele - 2011-12-08 08:37

      But we cannot rule out the possibility that it might be a hit,maybe organised by her mother as we all know she is no angel either.

      Mlungisi - 2011-12-08 08:40

      True, people are obsessed with Jub Jub, police are endangered on daily basis and just because he's a witness in a case that dragged for a long time it doesn't mean he wont be a victim of rife South African crime. The news are selling the story by Jub Jub, they have no news worthy details on the case itself. Only few will get what I'm saying and those are called logical thinkers.....

      TypeRSA - 2011-12-08 08:48

      Like your brain, wrong place wrong time.. Wake up clown!!

      Mlungisi - 2011-12-08 08:50

      @Thabo you got a point but here they say "He was busy with police investigations when two men shot him as he got out of his car, before running away." So I'll be convinced if he was killed at home. He was at "Angola squatter camp" they dont call the place Angola because they love Angola, it's because it's flipin dangerous.....clearly many here don't even know Cliptown hence they jump to conclusion and link Jub Jub.

      Mlungisi - 2011-12-08 08:57

      @TypeRSA well you know what News24 wants you to know, so I'm not surprised hence the lack of common sense.

      Deon - 2011-12-08 09:07

      I agree, he finsihed testifing as far as I remember.

      Mlungisi - 2011-12-08 09:28

      @Deon thanks for mentioning that, logically his absence doesn't have impact on the case proceedings, he testified under oath and I believe there are other witnesses who supported what he said in court.

  • comurray - 2011-12-08 07:48

    A really sad story, unfortunately this gentleman knew far too much and was got rid of by hired killers. My condolences to his family,colleges and friends.

  • mmakgaboe - 2011-12-08 07:53

    This case is really irritating now! Its clear ... what more does the magistrate need to sentence?? Freak!

  • Elle-Black - 2011-12-08 08:01

    Just take Jub jub to jail and let this story rest

  • swonas - 2011-12-08 08:03

    motive unknown? right!

  • Ian - 2011-12-08 08:17

    add another murder charge to the criminals rap sheet, texas/florida justice required here

  • Mashudu - 2011-12-08 08:28

    Enough of killing our police. Mr. President pls do something, this is getting out of hand now. Death penalty must come back.

      Grant - 2011-12-08 13:57

      Oh please - are youtalking to ZUMA? If he DID reinstate the death penalty, he would use it to get rid of negative press folk, and maybe Zille. You really think he gives a rats @ss about REAL crime??

  • Ben - 2011-12-08 08:37

    If this is a war against the arm of the law, I hope that they manage to stay positive and the law-makers as well as the courts will assist them to eliminate crime. Criminals can not be allowed to hunt our police.

  • wnkambule - 2011-12-08 09:05

    What a sick joke, a case has been running since MARCH LAST YEAR! now the poor guy is murdered... wasn't killing the kids enough???

  • bretton.eveleigh - 2011-12-08 09:11

    At this rate the criminals are going to wipe out our police force!

  • nkulu.bgumede - 2011-12-08 09:30

    mmmmh there is no rat in this one, its all just clear. the one key witness that was investigating their "accident". he first claims that he blacked out, then the witnesses were lying then coincidentially the detective gets shot. allow me to paint a picture of what i presume is the truth... someone inside the justice system has been paid to give outsiders info of the where abouts of the detective. what do you know he is going to the Angolan squatter camp, perfect blame it on the foreigners, he gets murdered and minus one problem. condolences to the family but with him out of the way, jub jub can subtract a few years off his sentence.

  • marcelo.chihale - 2011-12-08 09:38

    Mafia style operation.

  • Henning - 2011-12-08 09:43

    Motive unknown?? Motives don't come any clearer than this!

      Grant - 2011-12-08 14:00

      Same as the link between Solly's murder, and the murders of his two mates who were all busted together driving slowly with their lights and an unlicenced firearm in the car. TOO difficult to figure out. Eish!

  • Howling - 2011-12-08 09:43

    poor lil jub jub! I pray to the lord almighty that your little JUB JUB , whom you were so worried about on the Survivor Series , finally rots off in our wonderful prison system . JUB JUB is going to get LUBED LUBED ! u r a pathetic disgrace to humanity and finally your grace has fallen. BE A MAN, Stand up and take your punishment . God bless the innocent souls who have fallen to your reckless and arrogant behaviour.

  • Bryan - 2011-12-08 09:45

    The motive is so blatantly obvious!! In S.A we are starting to look like a very bad 'B' grade movie with all the daily killings and organized hits.. A government with no control, a totally in-effective police department and corruption that stinks to high heaven.... We are in the crap..!!!

  • Johnnys_Place - 2011-12-08 09:47

    Well well well, interresting turning point here !!! First the denial (which did not work) and now the investigating officer shot dead (hit)! Coincidence... NOT !!!

  • Gavin - 2011-12-08 10:10

    This is another symptom of the disease that if left untreated, will kill this country. I hope you rot in hell you child murdering piece of shirt.

  • luyolo.mgodi - 2011-12-08 10:14

    But we all know, or maybe some of us know what Mama Jackie is capable of. This is the same woman who fooled Oprah. Remember she the very same women who hired thugs to kidnap a journalist. Remember Jub Jub had to quit survivor because the money couldn't go to her mom's charity as it was being investigated for some shady happenings in the time?? I'm just saying!! Anyway, who the hell am I to point out such hey??

  • Baxito - 2011-12-08 10:31

    The judge better get bodyguards, he's next on the list.

  • Shirley - 2011-12-08 10:43

    This is blatantly obvious-a hit. Question is how long is it going to take for the authorities to actually put this together. This country is becoming downright shamefull! If someone testifies against you take him out!Anc WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BLOOD!!!!!!

  • Deeteem - 2011-12-08 10:48

    Ass as i nation !!

  • Marion - 2011-12-08 11:13

    This cop was probably the investigating officer in many cases. If the media had just reported that a cop was murdered whilst investigating a case (which is what happened) would we all still be blaming Jub Jub for it or would our comments have a different slant?

  • mbongenia - 2011-12-08 11:19

    if this case was closed in time it would have spared the Detective's life. now its one less detective to help solve the thousands of crimes

  • duma.martin - 2011-12-08 11:20

    the biggest cancer in the service is dirty/corrupt cops,who sellout the hard working ones.How did they know where he'd be??

  • Spiral - 2011-12-08 12:02

    i couldve give you one very good motive!

  • john.h.viljoen - 2011-12-08 13:43
