CAPE TOWN – Belinga Magor (60) was recorded in a WhatsApp message calling for black people to be banned instead of pit bulls.

Her case was adjourned to March 27, 2023 after she was released with a warning.

In the audio, a woman can be heard defending pit bulls amid calls to ban the breed as pets.

The debate was sparked by calls to ban pit bulls after a series of fatal attacks.

The case was opened at Boksburg North Police Station and transferred to Putfontein for further investigation.

Legal expert and former judge Deon Poole said: “ [SA] The Human Rights Commission has launched an investigation. So she will be going to the Equality Court in relation to these comments, because they border to a large extent on what Vicky MomberG said.’

Poole added: “There was no real reason for these comments other than to be offensive… this is pure hate speech.”

He said Vicki Momberg was found guilty of four counts of criminal damage and sentenced to two years behind bars after racially slurring police officers using the k-word 48 times in 2016.

“She didn’t use the ‘k’ per se, which was even more aggravating in Vicky Momberg’s case, but she used exactly the same approach, the same tone, creating the same derogatory message and targeting a certain ethnic group in this country.”
