Former Miss SA Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala has shared the incident that made her throw caution to the winds after a white couple allegedly threw racist comments at her.
According to the ex beauty queen, the couple called her a monkey while swearing at her. Bokang, who is married to soccer star Siphiwe Tshabalala, described how she was driving when a couple in a car behind her went ballistic.
She said they were all waiting for their turn to cross the road. However, because other cars were still passing from the other side, she decided to wait. Apparently, the couple behind her became impatient and started blaring their horn. Eventually she moved to the yellow lane so that they could pass.
But instead of just driving along, she claims the man in the car who happened to be a white man started swearing at her.
“You’re a fucken monkey. Monkeys can’t drive. Fuck you, you monkey.”
Notably, the racist rants were coming on Human rights Day and the ex beauty queen wasn’t ready to take it from anyone. Thus, she decided to take the bull by the horn.
“I got so mad… Today is Human Rights day and we as Africans are still being called monkeys by some white people… I followed them and I blocked the whole road, got out of my car,stood right in front of their car and told them they can run me off if they want to but I will not be moving out till they get out and apologize.”
And they did apologise in front of all the people who gathered to watch.
Apparently, Bokang didn’t care that she was a public figure who was causing a scene. She made it clear that she has zero chill for racism.
