Johannesburg- Suspended TV presenter, Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye has broken his silence following accusations he faced last week of raping three women.

These allegations led him to lose his job at Moja Love TV where he was presenting Uyajola 9/9 show.

On Wednesday, the actress, Amanda du-Pont issued a video on her Instagram where she revealed that Jub Jub raped her for two consecutive years.

She was denying the claims made by the presenter in his interview on Podcast and Chill with MacG where he revealed that he "smashed"her.

Social media was abuzz last week with these news as more women came to say that they were raped by Jub Jub too.

Former Metro FM presenter, and currently the spokesperson for Minister of Arts and Culture, Masechaba Ndlovu also said she was raped by Jub Jub when she was a teenager and they were dating.

Also, Jub Jub's cousin, Refilwe Khumalo came forth to say she was raped by the singer as well.

Jub Jub has been silent all along but now he has broken his silence and reveals he is fighting back. In a statement issued, he announced that he will be laying charges of crimen injuries and defamation of character against two well known female celebrities and his cousins for accusing him of rape.

The statement was issued through family spokesperson Andile Ngcobo. According to the statement, he will also press charges against Bonokuhle Nkala, who claims to have witnessed him abusing Du Pont.

In the statement, Maarohanye also said he will serve each of them with letters of demand to retract and apologise for the defamatory allegations they made against him.

“It is unfortunate that these heavy allegations are false and fake, as a family we met Amanda Du Pont when our son introduced her to us, we accepted her as one of our own.

Amanda also introduced our son to her father. During their relationship, they had mutual respect and understanding, love and support,” Ngcobo says in the statement reads.

"The claims and serious allegations by Ms Du Pont were clearly concocted to injure and defame our son's name which he is working hard to safeguard."

Maarohanye also denied Masechaba's claim that he raped her at his mother, Jackie Maarohanye's house and said he turned her down when she hit on him.

At the same time, Amanda said that she will be going once again to open a case of rape against Jub Jub after the first attempt failed when police officers turned her away.
