Post the court proceedings, Terrence Baloyi expressed confidence in Jub Jub’s chances of winning the case. Baloyi questioned the state’s case strength, emphasizing the extended period between the alleged offences (2006-2009) and the complainant’s legal action, stating, “If someone claims they have been raped and waits for a long period, that means there is nothing against him.”

Baloyi acknowledged the challenge of addressing allegations from many years ago, reiterating that the delay in taking legal action casts doubt on the credibility of the claims.

Notably, this isn’t the first time Jub Jub’s case has been postponed. In November 2023, the adjournment aimed to provide the state more time to consult with witnesses and complainants.

The recent court proceedings included an exchange between Magistrate Khumalo and Baloyi, with the former expressing reluctance to further extend dates. Baloyi clarified that the matter, while significant, was not one of life or death but related to Jub Jub’s upcoming tour.
