JOHANNESBURG, April 18 – Convicted racist Vicki Momberg’s leave to appeal both her conviction and sentencing was dismissed by the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Momberg, 49, Momberg was sentenced to three years imprisonment with one year suspended by the same court last month.
She was found guilty of four counts of crimen injuria in November last year, after she 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 June 2017, the Equality Court awarded damages of R100,000 to Constable Clement Mkhondo after he was verbally assaulted by Momberg.
The sentence was widely welcomed by political parties and civil society.
