Jub Jub Trial Postponed Until 2024
The criminal trial of Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye has officially been postponed to next year after the rapper made a brief appearance in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court this morning, Monday 11 December.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will be laying 13 charges against the 43-year-old “Uyajola 9/9” presenter, which include attempted murder, assault and kidnapping.
Maarohanye was first arrested in July this year, after an ex-girlfriend came forward to the police to accuse him of sexual assault. According to reports, the woman brought up the allegations after Maarohanye spoke about their relationship on “Podcast and Chill”, hosted by MacG, in 2021.
Three other women also chose to speak up and share their alleged similar experiences with Maarohanye.
The television personality was released on a bail of R10 000 and has denied all of the charges laid against him.
It’s unclear why the court date was postponed to 5 February 2024, as one publication reported that it was to allow the defence attorneys time to confer with their client while, another outlet mentioned that Maarohanye had prior work commitments over the festive period.
