Racist Momberg to be sentenced next week


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.

JOHANNESBURG – The sentencing of Vicki Momberg, whose racist tirade was caught on camera, will be handed down next week.

She appeared in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday morning where the matter was postponed to 28 March.

Momberg&39;s lawyer Kevin Lawlor argued that she required psychiatric treatment and not punishment.

“The probation officer’s report says she is still an individual who is in a position to be rehabilitated, become a constructive member of society," Lawlor told the court. 

Momberg was convicted of crimen injuria because of her rant, which went viral on social media in early 2017.

She was captured on camera, verbally abusing officers who had arrived to help her, following a smash-and-grab incident in Johannesburg.

The woman repeatedly used the K-word and refused assistance from black officers, citing incompetence.
