Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye and his co-accused was sentenced to 8 years in prison each for their drag racing on a public road which resulted in the death of some school children.
According to Correctional Services spokesman Singabakho Nxumalo, once an offender serves half of their sentence, they are eligible to undergo a parole process which, if successful, could result in a release.
“December 2016 then means that possibilities of parole can be reviewed as they have served half of their eight-year imprisonment process,” said Nxumalo.
He also added “This process protects both parties. We encourage this process to make sure that once an offender is rehabilitated, their release should not infringe on anyone. This (process) includes countless consultations with affected families and community members,”.
“We will continue to investigate the matter, and it will be going on record for when the issue of his parole is reviewed,” he said.
As at now we can’t confirm if he will be paroled before the year runs out and can only wait for the news to pop out
