Mathapelo Peters confirmed that Vicki Momberg surrendered herself at the Douglasdale police station in Johannesburg.
She was then taken to the Randburg Magistrate’s Court where the final charge of the arrest warrant will be finalized.
This comes after she apparently disobeyed a court order and did not report to the court.
Police have been searching for her since August 1.
This comes after a Tweet from Yusuf Abramjee
He then later Tweet that Vicki Momberg reached out to him saying:
Vicki Momberg says she is not on the run. She says authorities know where she is. Momberg claims she has been out and about in Durban openly over recent days. Momberg says her advocate has been in touch with the @NPA_Prosecutes and documents have been filed for an appeal.
She was sentenced to two years in prison in 2018 with an additional year suspended.
She was granted bail pending the outcome of her appeal, which was rejected by the Johannesburg High Court in June this year.
Momberg was then given 30 days to appeal to the Court of Appeal. Should she fail to do so, she would have to report to court to serve the rest of her sentence.
When she failed to report to the Randburg Regional Court on July 31, a warrant was issued for her arrest.
National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane said this week Momberg had a chance to apply to the Court of Appeal, but her legal team filed it after the deadline and her bail had already expired.
So two criminal charges of contempt of court are currently facing Momberg – one because of the criminal case and one because of the civil case in the Equality Court.
