JOHANNESBURG - A South Africa court has found a hip hop star guilty of the murder of four schoolchildren in a case that has raised emotions in the nation.
Molemo Maarohanye, best known by his stage name Jub Jub, faced charges of murder and attempted murder stemming from a March 8, 2010 drag race in which his car and that of a co-accused crashed into a group of schoolchildren, killing four and seriously injuring two.
A magistrate ruled that the men had been driving under the influence of drugs, finding both guilty on four counts of murder and on two counts of attempted murder. They will be sentenced in November.
Families of the victims were overwhelmed with emotion after the decision was read, with one woman losing consciousness, according to the South African Press Association.
