press release

The IFPYB has welcomed the verdict in the case of musician Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye with his co-accused Themba Shabalala, who were found guilty on four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder of four school children.

IFP Youth Brigade National Chairperson, Mkhuleko Hlengwa MP said "The sentencing of this pair passes a strong message to those who abuse drugs and alcohol, which can lead to such devastating fatalities"

"The IFPYB believes that anyone who is involved in killing of innocent people due to their failure to obey traffic laws must be arrested. The IFPYB cannot tolerate people who associate themselves with drug abuse" added Hlengwa.

The IFPYB hopes that public personalities do not see themselves above the law and we hope that a strong message has been sent that everyone is equal before the law.
