The trial of hip hop artist Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala, is due to start today.
Maarohanye and Tshabalala are charged for murder after killing four school children in a road accident.
The pair's trial is set to take place in the Protea Magistrate's Court from Monday to Friday this week.
The men face four murder charges, relating to an accident that happened in March this year.
The accident saw four school children walking next to the road dead and two others critically injured.
It is alleged that the pair were drag racing in Soweto when their Mini Coopers swerved off the road killing four and injuring two.
The prosecution said earlier that preliminary tests revealed that Maarohanye had cocaine and morphine in his system at the time of the crash, while Tshabalala was twice over the legal alcohol limit.
The men are both out on bail of R10,000 each.
