Masechaba Ndlovu has reflected on her alleged rape ordeal experience at the hands of former Uyajola 9/9 host and entertainer Molemo Maarohanye, popularly known as Jub Jub.

The TV and radio personality penned her ordeal in a sworn statement leaked to the media. In it she recalls how her ex-boyfriend allegedly raped her in his mother’s house when she was just a teenager.

MASECHABA‘HE OVERPOWERED ME’

In an affidavit tweeted by radio journalist Eusebius McKaiser, Masechaba claims she was a “Grade 11 or 12 learner at Mondeor High School” when she began dating Jub Jub. She also claims she told him she was a virgin.

Masechaba claims the incident occured after Jub Jub invited her to his home to watch a movie. She also claimed that Jub Jub instructed her to “carry a notebook and pen” and “pretend to be a journalist coming to interview him” if his mother, Mama Jackie, asked.

She detailed the course of events: “Molemo prepared popcorn and we watched a movie. Then we kissed and he requested we move to the bedroom in case his parents come back.

“We continued kissing. He tried to persuade me to have sex with him. I told him I was not ready [and] I repeatedly said no and kept pushing him away. I even used my knees and legs to push him off because he was on top of me”.

Masechaba then revealed that she gave up fighting after a “physical struggle”.

“He told me it would be quick and I should relax. There was a physical struggle between us. I became physically tired and he eventually overpowered me, pulled my legs open and penetrated me.

“At this point, I was numb and in complete shock. I stopped fighting. I was paralysed. The experience was brief and painful. I put my clothes on and went home”.

‘JUB JUB TOLD ME TO TAKE THE MORNING-AFTER PILL’

The next day, Masechaba claims Jub Jub ordered her to take emergency contraceptives.

“Molemo called and asked me if I knew about morning-after pills. I had never heard [of them]. He explained that I needed to get to the pharmacy and get morning after pills to prevent pregnancy. I did as instructed”.

“It was a humiliating experience. I couldn’t tell my mother because I had lied to her about my whereabouts and I was scared that I would be in trouble for going to a boy’s house. I was ashamed and embarrassed [and] did not tell a soul”.

Masechaba also revealed how the experience impacted her, years later.

“I blocked the entire experience out of my mind, and due to the trauma, I did not have sex for years after that experience. I did not admit nor want to admit to myself that I had been raped”.
