Verdict this week as Kelly reveals all on Jub Jub
Hip-hop star Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala are expected to hear their fate as early as this week.
Judging by the long and winding trial in the Protea Magistrates' Court, the judgment, expected to be long and winding too, has been set for three days.
The verdict is expected to be handed down any day between Wednesday and Friday, to the relief of the victims' families.
Maarohanye and Tshabalala face four counts of murder, two of attempted murder, reckless or negligent driving and driving under the influence of drugs.
It is alleged the accident happened during a drag racing incident in Protea, Soweto, on March 8 2010.
The Mini Coopers they were driving plunged into kids walking home from school, killing four schoolboys and critically injuring two of them.
It is also alleged they were driving drunk and high on drugs when their cars collided.
They face an additional charge of failing to ascertain the extent of the injuries of the victims.
The verdict comes at a time when Maarohanye's former girlfriend and mother of his child, singer and actress Kelly Khumalo, is releasing her kiss-and-tell book, written by Melinda Ferguson, based on interviews with the singer.
In the book a lot of attention is given to Maarohanye, with whom Khumalo had a tumultuous relationship.
In the tell-all she confides that in October last year, after their break-up, Maarohanye promised to be a better father to their son Christian and tried to visit him.
During one such visit, Khumalo alleges, Maarohanye became so jealous when she moved to answer a phone call, convinced it was from a man, that he stormed out of the room.
"When he came back he tried to have sex with me and I refused," she tells Ferguson.
"I told him we had broken up, things were over between us. He refused to accept this and kept trying. I pushed him away and then all hell broke loose. He pushed me back."
They began punching each other and he locked all the doors to prevent her from escaping, Khumalo tells Ferguson.
"Next thing, he jumped on me and bit me in the face."
Photographs of her bruised face made it into magazines and tabloid papers.
Khumalo laid a charge of assault against Maarohanye and he tried to lay a counter-charge, saying she tried to run him over.
They both ended up dropping the charges.
