During his application, his lawyer Terrence Baloyi questioned the strength of the State’s case against his client.

The National Prosecuting Authority, however, believes it has a solid case against the musician and media personality despite the difference between the alleged date of the incidents and the reports.

According to the authority, the latest report brought forward against Jub Jub was in February of 2022.
