JOHANNESBURG - Musician Molemo 'Jub Jub’ Maarohanye's co-accused Themba Tshabalala on Monday admitted that his car ploughed into a group of school pupils.
But he maintains the accident was not intentional.
The two men face charges of murder and attempted murder after they crashed their cars into a group of learners in Soweto.
Four pupils were killed and two others were injured in the 2010 crash.
On Monday, Tshabalala took the stand for the first time as he recounted the events that led to the fatal accident.
He said his car was bumped while overtaking Maarohanye’s, which resulted in him losing control of the vehicle.
Tshabalala’s car then ploughed into the school children.
Maarohanye's co-accused also admitted to drinking whiskey mixed with water before the incident, but insisted he was not over the legal limit.
Jub Jub’s lawyer Ike Motloung grilled Tshabalala and repeatedly told him to speak up.
