Victim of CT K-word incident 'traumatised'
The daughter of former minister Ngconde Balfour says Nicole de Klerk appeared to have been intoxicated.
CAPE TOWN - The victim of the latest racial incident at the Queen's Plate event in the Western Cape says she's hurt by the episode in which she was called by the k-word.
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.
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."
