South African Hip Hop Star Faces Angry Crowd in Court

Published May 28, 2010

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Chaos has erupted at a court hearing for a South African hip hop star accused of killing four students in an alleged drag racing crash.

Inspector Kay Makhubela said victims' family members screamed in court Friday and threatened to assault the hip hop star known as Jub Jub after his case was postponed.

Authorities managed to protect him and escort him out of the court.

The South African Press Association reported that the grandmother of one of the students who died said: "We will kill him ... He must come and apologize."

Jub Jub and a co-defendant, who are both out on bail, are facing charges of murder, reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol following the crash in March. Two others were critically injured.
