Momberg appeared on Thursday in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court, where it was revealed her lawyer, Kevin Lawlor, was admitted to hospital and could not appear to conduct the application. Momberg was sentenced last week to an effective two years in prison for using the K-word 48 times against the officers and 10111 operators trying to assist her after a smash-and-grab incident.
However, she has made it clear that she would appeal both the four convictions on crimen injuria and the sentencing.
During the brief proceedings on Thursday, Momberg’s attorney, Kingdom Onah, said that while he awaited his colleague’s recovery he also needed a transcript of the 10111 recordings used against his client during the criminal trial.
Momberg also became a subject of ridicule on social media after she arrived at the court sporting cornrows, with many asking which fellow inmate had assisted her in getting her new style.
