Jub Jub sues Moja LOVE for over R100 Million following the channel firing him!

There seems to be no end in sight with the drama between Uyajola 9.9 host, Molemo Katleho Maarohanye, famously known as Jub Jub and his former employers at Moja LOVE. What commenced as a situation that could have been resolved amicably, when Jub Jub insulted another business partner in December last year.

“Maarohanye apparently went too far in December by allegedly wrecking the station’s relationship with one of its founders, the Bakgatla-ba-Kgafela tribal community.” wrote the publication

It appears Jub Jub has reach a point of no return at this point. After failed attempts to issue a public apology to Keabetswe Mokoena, for the incident that took place where she was insulted by Jub Jub. The channel proceeded to withheld his salary as a punishment for his misconduct.

Just last week Moja LOVE cut all working ties with Jub Jub and decided to finally show him the door. However, according to the City Press, Jub Jub is suing the channel for over R100 million rand for breach of contract.

“Former Uyajola 9/9 presenter Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye has lodged a scathing legal salvo against Moja Love, seeking almost R100 million for breach of contract. Maarohanye argues that the termination of his contract emanates from his issuing a letter of demand to the channel for an unpaid or withheld salary.” wrote the publication

According to Sunday World, Jub Jub was fired shortly after the channel was slapped with lawyers following his outstanding January salary. The channel withheld his salary due an incident that took place in December where Jub Jub used swear words when addressing Keabetswa Mokoena.

“Sunday World can reveal that Moja Love, which airs the popular show, kicked Jub Jub to the kerb a few days after he sent the channel a letter from his lawyer, Terrence Baloyi, from Baloyi-Ntsako Attorneys, demanding payment of his January salary. The channel withheld Jub Jub’s January salary after he cocked a snook at the channel’s demand for him to publicly apologise to business partner Keabetswe Mokoena, who he allegedly insulted with her mother’s private parts and hurled other profanities at her.” reported the publication

Jub Jub’s dismissal was revealed by a source that is close to him. Surrounding him being booted by the channel, the source also mentioned that when the decision to let Jub Jub out of the door, another incident was considered where he confronted Mokoena’s acquaintance at OR Tambo International Airport.

“The CEO [Aubrey Tau] has an obligation to protect the integrity and reputation of the business. Jub Jub is a good presenter but he is not bigger than the brand Moja Love. Jub Jub had, in a desperate bid to get his job back, ambushed a senior traditional leader who was with Mokoena at the OR Tambo International Airport recently and implored him to ask Tau to extend an olive branch to him. But the CEO would have none of it and made it clear that he would not reinstate him unless he issues a public apology to Mokoena,” revealed the source.
