Racist realtor Momberg denied bail pending leave to appeal

28 March 2018

Momberg's application for leave to appeal her sentence will be heard in the magistrate's court Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

Momberg was found guilty of four counts of crimen injuria on November 3 a year ago in connection with a 2016 racist tirade, which started when she lashed out at a black police officer who had come to assist after an alleged smash-and-grab incident in Northriding, Johannesburg.

A special POCSO court today sentenced three men to 20 years in jail for the gangrape of a 16-year-old girl at Kheralu here a year ago.

She was captured on video in 2016 repeatedly using the K-word when addressing a black policeman. Momberg verbally abused a black police officer who had helped her after an alleged smash-and-grab incident.

In her judgment on March 28, Magistrate Pravina Rugoonandan said it's questionable whether Momberg showed remorse.

This is the first time a person has been sent to prison for racial slurs in the country.

The senior probation officer who oversaw Momberg's case, Daphney Naidoo, told the court that Momberg's treatment of Sekoba led Sekoba to undergo counselling. State prosecutor, Yusuf Baba asked the court for Momberg's bail not to be extended. "She was victim to a crime", Lawlor said.

A probable cause affidavit says Garcia-Rivera told authorities that she placed Maisy in a toddler bed and put the pillows and blankets on top of her.
