Momberg was not ready to speak to the media but has promised to do so in the near future.

Real estate agent Vicki Momberg, who was charged after an alleged racist outburst that was filmed, will face a further seven charges of crimen injuria.

Momberg’s case was transferred to the trial court on request by Senior Prosecutor Yusuf Baba during her second appearance in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Monday, Randburg Sun reported.

Baba told the court that the State was adding another seven charges of crimen injuria. The State has also given defence attorney Nardus Grové copies of the recordings that the charges will be based on.

Grové said he was still in the process of getting instructions from his client (Momberg).

He asked that the case be provisionally postponed until September 6 in order to finalise a report from a psychologist as well as other particulars.

Outside the courtroom, Momberg stood next to her attorney.

Momberg was not ready to speak to the media but has promised to do so in the near future.

“It has been traumatic for her but she is dealing with the matter to the best of her ability,” added Grové.

Momberg is in court due to a video that went viral in which she can be heard shouting the k-word many times.

She also rudely addressed police officers who were called to assist her after she was allegedly smashed-and-grabbed. The video was filmed near Bellairs Shopping centre in Randburg.

The nature of the additional charges remains unclear at this stage.
