South Africans took to social media to share their views on Momberg being granted a R2000 bail after serving only four months in prison.

A lot of tweeps mocked her time in jail, sarcastically adding it was enough for her to learn her lesson.

Social media user @_MossMo wrote, "Hope she has learned her lesson shem. If not she must go back for few more months."

However, there were tweeps who felt she should not have been granted bail to appeal a sentence she deserved.

Nick Explicit (@NickExplicit) wrote, "Appeal what? Has she been rehabilitated ? Set an example to all racists that if you want to push your hate speech, jail is where you belong."

Soon the conversation turned into another debate about Juju and AfriForum, with tweeps asking why the Afrikaner group was silent on Momberg receiving bail.

"If only she had fired off a firearm in a public space instead of doing something so vile as... saying words," @Mar12usB wrote, referring to Malema who fired what appears to by a rifle at his party's birthday celebrations.

As Briefly.co.za reported earlier, Momberg was released on R2 000 bail on 2 August by the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Momberg was convicted of racism and handed a 3-year sentence, with 1 year suspended and ordered to pay R100 000 to the policeman she verbally abused.
