The daughter of former Correctional Services Minister Ngconde Balfour, Sanelisiwe Balfour, says de Klerk appeared to have been intoxicated.
Balfour says she called them by the k-word repeatedly and eventually had to be escorted out of the event by security.
Balfour says while she forgives de klerk, she's left traumatised.
“She can apologise but she can’t for how she made us feel or she can’t take back what she said so it kind of says what type of a person she is.”
Advertising agency Talent Boom's employee Nicole de Klerk allegedly hurled the k-word at a group of professionals at the event yesterday.De Klerk has since been fired by her employer.
