JOHANNESBURG, August 13 – The Randburg Magistrate’s Court is on Wednesday, expected to hear closing arguments in the case against former estate agent and alleged racist Vicki Momberg.
Momberg, who faces a charge of crimen injuria, was seen shouting racial slurs at a black police officer who was trying to assist her after she was involved in an alleged smash and grab incident.
In February, Momberg, 48, was caught on camera calling a police officer the k-word while he was assisting her following a smash-and grab incident in North Riding.
At a previous appearance, the State said Momberg was seen on the video using the k-word 48 times. Momberg said she felt it was exaggerated and laughed before saying that at the time of the incident she didn’t want a black person near her.
In June, the Equality Court awarded Constable Clement Mkhondo, who was assaulted by Momberg, damages of R100,000. Momberg was also ordered to make an unconditional written apology to him as well as to attend a programme of integrated community service and sensitivity training administered by the South African Human Rights Commission along with affiliate organisations such as the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.
