A racist rant following a smash-and-grab in Johannesburg in February last year has cost a woman R100 000.
Vicky Momberg was filmed verbally assaulting a police officer who arrived at the scene of the smash-and-grab to assist her.
The Equality Court awarded the police officer, Constable Clement Mkhondo, R100 000 in damages.
Momberg, 48, has also been ordered by the court to visit the Apartheid Museum, attend South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) community outreach and advocacy programmes, and attend race sensitisation workshops conducted by the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.
In addition, she has also been ordered to make an unconditional written apology to Mkhondo and retract all her racist remarks, which will be published on Twitter, Facebook and the SAHRC’s website.
Momberg defended herself, saying that she was suffering from “temporary non-pathological incapacity” at the time of the incident.
