Consider us SHOOK.

The Vicki Momberg case took a hair-raising new twist on Wednesday when the 48-year-old convicted racist turned up to court sporting a fresh set of cornrows.

Sentenced to three years in jail (one suspended) last week for excessive use of the K word towards a police officer, Momberg hasn’t been able to escape the public eye. Which is probably why she’s gone for such a questionable new hair-do; there’s not much to lose at this point.

She was in court to apply for her leave of appeal, but as EWN report, that hearing has now been pushed back to next week. Momberg’s lawyer Kingdom Onah says she is “positive” the defence can get the sentence overturned.

but there’s been a huge sideshow created Momberg’s bad hair day. The South African Twitter community was rocked by what they were seeing and brought the sass that we love to see in these situations…
