Tobias Zehetleitner, Ngomani's fiancé, was also hospitalised after the altercation.

Video footage of the alleged racist attack was corrupted and could not be produced in court.

Two men were arrested in connection with the incident but did not appear in court on Tuesday.

The NPA did not enrol the case due to contradicting statements from the witnesses.

The docket has been forwarded to the police for further investigation.

Ngomani said she would be continuing her fight for justice, not only for herself but also for other women who have been subjected to racist attacks.
