Molemo 'Jub Jub' Maarohanye Sees Stark End to Career

Posted: Dec. 11th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Arguably the most popular South African artist in and around Johannesburg, Molemo Maarahanye aka “Jub Jub” has seen the last of his performance days for at least 25 years after being sentenced for the accidental killings of four schoolchildren in a drag racing incident. Almost Paradoxically, the charge sparked widespread protests despite the clear cut nature of the case.

A South African judge has sentenced a hip-hop star and his co-accused to 25 years each in prison for the killings of four schoolchildren in a drag-race crash.

The South African Press Association reported Wednesday that Magistrate Judge Brian Nemavhidi handed down the sentences to Molemo Maarohanye, best known by his stage name Jub Jub, and Themba Tshabalala. The judge previously ruled that the men had been driving under the influence of drugs at the time of the March 8, 2010, crash.

The crash in Soweto also seriously injured two other schoolchildren.
