Johannesburg – The real estate agent whose racist rant towards a black police officer was caught on camera is expected to appear in the Randburg District Court on Thursday.

Vicki Momberg is facing eight charges of crimen injuria after a video of the incident was released by eNCA.

In the video, she refused the help of the police officer and his white colleague after a smash-and-grab incident.

In September Momberg's attorney Nardus Grové told the court that she may enter into a plea bargain with the State.

The defence, however, said the deal can only be made once Momberg's psychologist report is submitted.

In the video clip Momberg can be heard complaining about the "calibre of blacks" in Johannesburg.

"The calibre of blacks in this town [varies] from the calibre of blacks in Durban. They're opinionated, they're arrogant, and they're just plain and simple useless. I am happy for a white person to assist me, or a coloured person, or an Indian person. I do not want a black person to assist me," she shouted.

"Let me tell you something. This is the type of police force we have got. We got a low calibre people working. If I see a black person, I will drive them over. If I have a gun, I will shoot everyone," she tells the officer before driving off.

In a similar incident, the Umzinto Equality Court in June fined Penny Sparrow R150 000 for calling black beachgoers monkeys.
