- The nation has reacted with shock to a clip of a heated exchange between two motorists
- A minor accident resulted in the situation escalating into a verbal argument which turned violent and then racist
- An older woman was caught on tape referring to the other motorist using the k-word and SA isn't happy
A video exposing a South African woman as a racist has emerged on social media and the resulting waves caught the attention of the nation.
Siphosethu Ngomane, a Gauteng resident, was involved in a minor collision with a white female motorist.
The video showed minimal damage done to both vehicles, with the woman goijng on a verbal tirade aimed at Siphosethu and her partner.
For a moment the situation got violent with Ngomane commenting that they had pulled over for another accident.
“I was observing all the lockdown regulations, making my way back from work. I notice that the car in front of me has lost control. The car then hits a lamppost and stopped moving altogether, the driver seemed to be in a ‘fit-like’ condition. We pulled up and rang the police.”

The motorist allegedly hit their parked car and immediately became aggressive towards the couple.
“Then, the lady in the video crashed into our car and instead of apologising she cursed me, slapping my phone out my hand and threatening to ‘beat me up’ while calling me names. The final straw was when she used the K-word! I’m disappointed that in 2020, we have a white racist still using a term deemed as illegal.”
The situation and the resulting video quickly went viral with Gauteng MEC for Community Safety Faith Mazibuko quickly getting involved.
"Kindly DM me the case number and police station you reported at. Alternatively, you can send the information to my spokesperson @pinkienuma on 066 080 7742."
Citizens were outraged that the woman felt comfortable enough to use the racial slur with such confidence.
Briefly.co.za reported that the slur had earned businessman Adam Catzavelous a steep fine after a similar video went viral.
