Mama Jackie, Jub Jub’s mother, was recently dragged into the controversy surrounding her son and the rape allegations leveled against him by multiple women. Now, she has come forth with her side of the story, to strongly defend her son.
A voice note has emerged that is allegedly of Jacqueline Maarohanye, aka Mama Jackie speaking up about Amanda Du Pont. In the audio clip, she says that the Skeem Saam actress once called her to tell her she was pregnant with twins. She further says that Amanda cannot turn around now and call it rape when she and Jub Jub were together for two years.

“Why did you not open a case?” she poses to Amanda in the audio. She also demands to know what happened to the twins that Amanda was allegedly pregnant with. Further she is asking why Amanda did not even report to her parents that she was being assaulted if that’s what it was.
She is also addressing Masechaba Ndlovu’s allegations that Jub Jub raped her in Mama Jackie’s house. In a challenge posed to Masechaba, she has promised to publish pictures of her house as it looked back then, if Masechaba can correctly describe the location in which she says the assault happened.
Tweeps are reeling from this latest development, as Mzansi is split down the middle as to what it means for the case going forward. As it stands, Jub Jub will be bringing the law to Amanda and Masechaba’s doors, with a demand letter asking them to retract their public statements.
Some tweeps are applauding Mama Jackie for standing up for her son, and saying that it is exactly what any mother should do. They believe she has the right to do it, especially since she was also implicated as an accomplice in her son’s alleged crimes.
That's just a mother who is involved in her son's life. I don't see anything wrong with her. The ladies also have parents, let their parents speak out against Mama Jackie too. I doubt any mother can watch their son dragged down and do nothing.

Amanda dragged Mama Jackie into this whole thing to validate her story and now when mama Jackie speaks out nithi she's protecting her son? Njani? What did y'all expect her to do?

I don't believe them either.
And I would also come out and defend my son, as Mama Jackie has – be it right or wrong.

Mama Jackie was implicated in this whole thing so what did you expect her to do?

But other tweeps feel like they are not surprised she defended her son, whom they still consider a criminal. They believe that Mama Jackie is “the reason he turned out like this”, and that she taught him from a young age never to face consequences for treating women terribly.
Mama Jackie is the cause of the way her son treats women. Even on Uyajola, you see the hostility he has towards them. She is the bigger cause of this whole issue. I hope they lock her up too and throw away the keys. Such evil doesn't deserve to exist Allegedly https://t.co/KXc9lAJ1Hr

Others are distancing the two issues and think it is both wrong and dumb for Mama Jackie to come out with such a statement. They believe there is so much parents don’t know about their children, and it is embarrassing for her to be so vocal when she doesn’t know the full truth either.
May my mother never defend me like this and may I never defend my kids like this. We have a justice system. My parents should support that and whatever outcome it gives.
Mama Jackie doesn't go everywhere with her son. There's so much she doesn't know about him. https://t.co/IzbTNBXTaj

Jub Jub is 41 years of age. What the hell is Mama Jackie doing getting mixed up in his issues? Tells you how toxic that woman is.

At the moment, it is unclear whether Mama Jackie will be pursuing any further legal action like her son is doing, especially since she was named by Masechaba and others as an accomplice and an abuser. What’s for sure, is that this is not the last we will be hearing from her and her son. – ZAlebs
