Convicted musician Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye has been moved from Johannesburg Prison, aka “Sun City” to the tougher Leeuwkop Correctional Centre because he was allegedly caught having sex.
The alleged incident took place about two weeks ago inside a Sun City office during an award ceremony.
The mystery woman, a female visitor’s “loud screams apparently gave them away and they were caught in action,” said a warden.
Another wardern alleged that Jub Jub was supposed to entertain inmates and visitors but he vanished before the performance.
A further insider claimed: “Later on there was an exchange of words between Jub Jub and the warder who caught him.”
Another inmate said: “Last Tuesday he was removed from his cell – kicking and screaming – and taken to Leeuwkop prison.”
He added: “Jub Jub gets preferential treatment. I’ve been cleaning in the offices of the prison but I’m still treated like an animal.”
A senior prison official said Jub Jub had it coming because he’d been enjoying too many privileges inside the prison.
“It’s not the first we hear of such incidents. I think top officials were pressurised to move him out because of reports about Jub Jub’s easy life inside,” he said.
Last week, the Department of Correctional Services’ Zodwa Mtsweni confirmed that on 21 May the Johannesburg Correctional Centre Medium C had an award ceremony at the centre’s courtyard to honour offenders who had achieved well academically.
“Offender Molemo Maarohanye was not scheduled to entertain the audience,” she told the People’s Paper.
Asked about Jub Jub’s move to Leeuwkop, Mtsweni stated: “The transfer of offender Molemo Maarohanye to Leeuwkop Maximum was part of an overcrowding management process.
“Therefore, it has no bearing on allegations that he was transferred due to an alleged incident,” she told Sunday Sun.
