Jub Jub Apologises to Amanda du Pont After She Threatens to Open Rape Charges

Uyajola 9/9 host Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maarohanye has apologised to actress and former lover Amanda du Pont for humiliating her during his unfiltered interview with Mac G last week.

Jub Jub threw himself in hot water with his utterances during the podcast with Mac G which led to a number of women accusing the star of rape.

In the interview, Jub Jub said things like he “smashed” Amanda and that Amanda “left him” after she saw him pictured with his ex and mother to his son, Kelly Khumalo.

After revealing intimate details of his affair with Amanda du Pont, she decided to share her own experience.

In a 17-minute emotionally charged video, the actress claimed that Jub Jub raped her multiple times for two years, while they were in a relationship she described as abusive.

Masechaba Khumalo and two other women followed suit accusing Jub Jub of rape.

“I was raped and physically abused by Jub Jub. The only thing I did wrong was to keep quiet,” Amanda said in a tweet.

Amanda’s lawyer, Tony Mathe told Sunday Times that the actress would be opening a rape case against the Uyajola 9/9 host, but could not say when.

In his apology statement, Jub Jub acknowledged having embarrassed Amanda during the interview.

“In the aftermath of the release of my interview with Mac G, I have taken some time to rewatch the interview and reflect on my words, specifically my exchange with Mac G regarding Ms Amanda du Pont.

“It was inappropriate for me to discuss the intimate details of my relationship with Ms Du Pont in public. I deeply regret the incident. I wish to apologise unreservedly to Amanda for the humiliation and hurt I caused her,” he wrote.

Jub Jub apologised to Amanda only for humiliating her but has kept mum on the rape accusation, except to say he would let the law take its course.

“About the accusations levelled against me by Amanda and others, I have decided to make room for the law to take its course.”
