Jub jub back in court for 13 charges including rape

Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye, a rapper and TV presenter is expected to return to the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court where he is facing at least 13 charges including rape, attempted murder and assault.

The matter was previously before court in August following a request by Maarohanye’s lawyer, Terrence Ntsako Baloyi for additional time to study the docket.

Jub Jub handed himself over to the police in Brixton on Thursday, 27 July 2023, after a warrant of arrest was issued against him. He was released on bail of R10 000. The National Prosecuting Authority’s Gauteng regional spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane, in a statement, explained how the musician was charged.

“One of the complainants laid a rape charge with SAPS in February 2022 against Maarohanye, her former boyfriend. She alleged that the incidents of rape happened between 2006 and 2009 while she was in a relationship with him.

“After seeing her speaking out about her ordeal on social media, more women decided that it was time to come forward and tell their stories about the humiliation and abuse they suffered at the hands of the accused,” she said.

“After the complainant’s consultation with the Senior Public Prosecutor in Johannesburg, three more women were willing to give statements about their own experiences whilst they were in a relationship with the accused ,” said Mjonondwane.
