Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maaronhanye: Victims’ Families Say The Rapper Lied, Here’s Why


In the bid to move on from the past few horrible years that he says will haunt him forever, rapper Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maaronhanye went on air for the first time since his parole.

Jub Jub had his first television interview on Thursday after about three months of being released from jail on parole. He used the opportunity to open up about the accident that landed him in jail.

Speaking on the car crash that claimed the lives of four school children and left two brain damaged, the rapper once again, apologised to the nation and thanked South Africans for being “forgiving.”

His comments left the families of the 2010 fatal accident fuming. The victims’ families lashed out against him‚ labeling him a “liar“

This follows Jub Jub’s interview on SABC 2’s Morning Live where he specified that he had apologised to the victims’ families during a private meeting.

On the contrary‚ some of the families of the victims reportedly spoke out, accusing Jub Jub of lying. According to what one of the fathers told Daily Sun, the rapper has still not apologised for the incident.

“He never came to us‚ let alone spoke to us or apologised. I don’t want to see him. I am not selling out my son‚” Ian Mthombeni‚ the father of Andile Mthombeni‚ told Daily Sun.

In addition, several other families supported the statement‚ telling the tabloid that they are also yet to receive an apology from the musician.
