CONVICTED: South Africa Hip Hop Artist and Former Child Star, JUB JUB Faces The Music!

Filed under : Africa, Entertainment

March 2010, South African Hip Hop muso and former child star, Molemo Maarohanye, popular as Jub Jub, took to the streets of Soweto for a bit of drag-racing along with his friend, Themba Tshabalala.

Under the influence of alcohol and drugs, their speeding Mini Coopers unfortunately ploughed into a group of 4 school children, who were making their way home from school, KILLING all 4 kids.

 Fast track to 2012: The two racers were convicted at the Protea Magistrate Court, Johannesburg, today after the court found them guilty of four counts of murder and two of attempted murder, putting an end to a trial that has been going on forever.

Judge Brian Nemavhidi said:

“The death of the deceased was caused by the accused’s reckless driving at high speeds while under the influence of drugs and alcohol,”

Albeit the pair will only be sentenced on the 30th of November 2012, they were denied bail as the state felt that “no exceptional circumstance were proved”. So till then, they will be under police custody.

My Thoughts? Well, it’s almost hard not to feel sorry for the accused, considering that they could be spending the rest of their lives in orange overalls and harsh living conditions. However, justice was served coz 4 families, lost their children because of reckless behavior. For that reason, I’m pleased.

Your thoughts?
