Last July, following a bail grant of R10,000, Jub Jub surrendered his passport to the authorities as part of his bail conditions, also obliging to deliver it to the Brixton police station. The multifaceted artist and television personality faces an array of 13 charges, including rape, indecent assault, assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and kidnapping. The accusations stem from three individuals who have made their grievances public and have a history of association with the accused.
