Landmark ruling

For the first time in history, a South African court has sentenced a woman up to three years in prison, with one year suspended, over a racist rant directed at a black police officer.

“We’ve had crimen injuria (cases before), but they have always been coupled by other charges. This is the first for a prison sentence for crimen injuria on its own,” National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane said.

Vicky Momberg, a former estate agent, used a derogatory word against a black police officer 48 times in 2016 incident and it was caught in a clip that went viral.

Her lawyer said she was not in a normal state at the time, as she had just been the victim of a smash-and-grab robbery.

A police officer tried to help her while Momberg kept saying she wanted to be helped by a white or ethnic Indian officer, and that black people were “plain and simple useless” and “they are clueless, clueless”.

Previously people convicted of the same crime have been fined.

Black people make up 80 percent of ’s 54 million population, but most its wealth remains in the hands of whites, who account for about 8 percent.
