- The woman accused of calling the captain of a Kulula flight the k-word admitted guilt
- She blamed her frustration with the airline for using the word
- The passenger who called her out on her behaviour feels she should face the Human Rights Commission
It has come to light that the passenger who was removed from a Kulula flight for allegedly calling the captain the k-word has admitted to doing so.
26-year-old Alochna Moodley called the captain as well as two black passengers the k-word.
Moodley blamed her behaviour on her frustration with the airline. She was upset that it was so late and the airplane was not yet moving.
Captain Menzi Mvelase, Sibusiso Magubane and Reverend Solumuzi Mabuza were the three people she called this word.
According to a report by the Sowetan, Moodley was called out by Reverend Mabuza. He saw her type the k-word on her phone as well as complain about another passenger's sniffing.
Briefly.co.za learned that Moodley defended herself, saying that Reverend Mabuza had no right to look on her phone as she was typing.
She feels the situation was blown out of proportion. She added that she tried to apologise to Mabuza, but he didn't want to hear her.
However, Mabuza says she did not apologise. In fact, according to Mabuza, Moodley was arrogant.
He feels her case must go to the Human Rights Commission and is willing to lay criminal charges.
Briefly.co.za earlier reported on the incident on Friday, the 15th of June, when a woman was removed from a Kulula flight from Joburg to Durban after she was accused of calling the captain the k-word.
Another passenger, Nadine Watkins, shared the news on social media, according to The Sowetan. Watkins stated that the flight would turn back to the Johannesburg airport after a passenger called the captain the k-word.
