A video has appeared on Social Media showing a shocking and racist rant between two motorists that ended up in a road traffic accident.
Siphosethu Ngomane, a resident in Gauteng, took to Twitter after a woman shouted abuse towards her after the angry woman had allegedly rear-ended her vehicle.
In the video, the angry woman can be heard using the derogatory K-word which is classified as a racist slur in South Africa. Such incidents involving the K-word have been reported in the past from the likes of Vicki Momberg, resulting in a lengthy battle with the law and even a prison sentence.
The law does not take lightly to racial terms being used towards fellow citizens, the chances of the aggressive woman getting let off is slim, as proven in previously reported cases of this nature.
Video of the incident can be found here
The video was originally posted by Siphosethu Ngomane on Twitter with President Ramaphosa and Police Minister Bheki Cele tagged in the post.
However, this is not a thread created to discuss the “great things” happening in this county. I have reached out to SAPS regarding this matter and their response has been nothing but…(distasteful to say the least). pic.twitter.com/lMoA47bTAU— siphosethu ngomane (@siphosethungom1) May 4, 2020
