Cape Town – South African actress and media personality Amanda du Pont recently took to her Instagram page to reveal that Jub Jub, real name Molemo Katleho Maarohanye, raped and physically abused her for two years.
Du Pont’s revelation came after she noticed her name trending on Twitter following Jub Jub’s interview on Channel-O with MacG on Podcast and Chill.
According to The South African, the Moja love Uyajola 9/9 presenter allegedly said during the interview that he “smashed” Amanda while they were in a relationship a while ago.
However, on her Instagram page, Du Pont posted an emotional video in which she revealed that her experience with Jub Jub was nothing but horror because he raped and physically abused her, causing her to have an abortion.

“You didn’t smash me, you forcefully opened my legs and you forced yourself on me numerous times for two years. The most painful part of all of this was that I was a virgin and I told him at the time. I told Jub Jub at the time that I was a virgin and I planned to be a virgin until the time I got married,” said Amanda in an Instagram video.
“…I was raped, physically and emotionally abused for two years by Jub Jub. The only thing I did wrong was keep quiet. But that ends here I will not be publicly ridiculed by this criminal. Him and Mac G saw it fit to drag my name on their podcast for clout at the cost of amplifying a Gender Based Violence Case. Any Attorney that can help me with a cease and decease letter or help with dealing with this man legally, please reach out so that he can keep my name out his mouth. Not because I can’t afford it but because I want to make this a public fight. The fight is bigger than me. Dedicated to the women who never make it out and end up dead,” Amanda said.
