Convicted racist Vicki Momberg sentenced to prison

Convicted racist Vicki Momberg sentenced to prison”

In a video captured in 2016, Momberg called police officer kaffir, a derogatory term in South Africa, after the officer tried to help her following an alleged smash-and-grab incident in Northriding, Johannesburg.

Former real estate agent Vicki Momberg has been denied bail pending her leave to appeal, in the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Momberg was found guilty on four counts of crimen injuria.

She used the k-word 48 times during the now infamous rant.

State prosecutor Yusuf Baba argued against the bail application prior to an appeal procedure because the court had to apply its mind on whether such appeal had any prospects of success.

As Magistrate Pravina Raghoonandan finished delivering her sentence‚ Momberg was escorted to the holding cells.

As part of the sentence, Klos will have to repay the money she stole and will be placed on three years of probation after release.

Civil rights organisation AfriForum says while Vicki Momberg's remarks were racist, the sentence imposed on her confirmed the double standards in South Africa, especially regarding race.

This is the first person in the country to be sentenced to direct imprisonment for crimen injuria.

Dee Hunte, 35, of Mary Seacole Close, was waiting for the victim outside her home on November 18 2016.

On Wednesday, Advocate Kevin Lawlor for Momberg said it was at the court's discretion to grant her bail despite the accused being sentenced.

Brown testified against Foster, saying she went out with her cousin the night before her daughter was found dead when Foster was taking care of the child.
