Closing arguments in Vicki Momberg's trial


Johannesburg, 01 August 2016 - Vicki Momberg's legal woes are far from over. The estate agent - known for her racist rant after a smash-and-grab incident in Johannesburg - is about to face seven additional charges of crimen injuria.

RANDBURG - Closing arguments will be heard in the crimen injuria case against former estate agent Vicki Momberg in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday. 

Momberg was charged after hurling racial abuse at police officers who attended to her after she was involved in an alleged smash-and-grab incident.

A video of the February 2016 incident went viral on social media, sparking widespread outrage.

During the trial, the court heard the Momberg was caught on camera using the K-word 48 times.

In May, the state read out a report by Momberg’s psychiatrist, which had been submitted during the Equality Court proceedings against her, which said she had a psychological condition at the time of her outburst, but had the ability to differentiate between right and wrong.

Momberg offered a temporary insanity defence during her testimony. 

In June, the Equality Court ordered Momberg to pay R100,000 in damages to the officer she racially abused, Constable Clement Mkhondo.
