Angry South African Pupils Vow To Kill Jub Jub

“If he gets bail, they will kill him, they just don’t know how yet,” said Congress of SA Students (Cosas) provincial secretary Oagilwe Louw referring to protesting school pupils.

A protester told Sapa: “We will kill him today, but we are thinking of ways of how to kill him.”

When asked how they planned to do that, protesters huddled together in groups and one replied: “We are talking about it. We will have an answer for you all soon.”

A Cosas member used a loudspeaker to tell the crowd to calm down, saying otherwise Jub Jub would be too afraid to come out.

“Let him come out, let him come out. We will kill him,” protesters shouted.

The people who had been locked out of the court building swore at police officers guarding the court.

When a police van moved, some protesters jumped onto the van while others banged against the vehicle.

Earlier Jub Jub, whose real name is Molemo Maarohanye, and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala, arrived in a police van filled with prisoners, who were screaming: “Ayeye, Jub Jub, ayeye [‘watch out’ in isiZulu].”

School pupils in their uniforms brandished sticks, tree branches and African National Congress flags.

Earlier, protesters sang, “babulala abafowethu [they killed our friends in isiZulu] and “Asibasabi siya bafuna [we are not scared of them]” and “Viva uyeza umkhonto [the weapon is coming]”.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala face murder charges after four school pupils were killed and two critically injured when the two were allegedly racing their Mini Coopers in Soweto, Johannesburg earlier this month.

They face four charges of murder, two of attempted murder and one each of reckless driving and drunken driving.  Times Live
