Well-known rapper and media personality Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye, who is facing rape, attempted murder, and assault charges has been granted R10,000 bail in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court. The police said Maarohanye handed himself over to authorities on Thursday.
Gauteng police spokesperson Mavela Masondo explained: “A well-known rapper handed himself over to the police in Brixton on Thursday the 27th July 2023 after a warrant of arrest was issued against him.
Maarohanye will return to court next month, to answer to his multiple charges. Moreover, the State did not oppose the granting of his bail. The matter has been postponed to August 24.
In the meantime, he’s been ordered not to interfere with any of the witnesses and to hand over his passport. According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the charges date back to 2006 and relate to four different victims.
The NPA said a case was only opened recently, though, following comments the accused made on the controversial Podcast and Chill with MacG. In his affidavit in support of bail, he denied the charges against him.
