Rapper and presenter Molemo Maarohanye, popularly known as Jub Jub, vehemently denied committing the crimes he is being accused of, including three counts of rape, two counts of attempted murder, and assault. Handing himself over to Brixton police, he was granted bail of R10,000.
The charges stem from incidents between 2006 and 2010, but the first complaint was only filed in 2022, raising questions about the timing of the allegations. While admitting that speculations of ulterior motives exist, Jub Jub maintains that the accusations against him are false.
