JOHANNESBURG - The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is now investigating cellphone footage taken of a woman, who claims to have been a victim of crime, calling Johannesburg police officers the k-word.
eNCA has broadcast the video captured by a bystander, in which the woman tries to report a recent smash and grab.
The woman accused black Johannesburg police officers of being "useless" and refused to be helped by a black officer.
The commission's Isaac Mangena says they are examining the footage and are now trying to trace the woman.
"We have seen the video and we were shocked by the anger and utterances that came out of the person's [mouth], especially the anger towards black people. "
Former estate agent Penny Sparrow was recently ordered to pay R150,000 to the to the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation for her racist comments on Facebook, where she called black people monkeys.
The SAHRC says since the Sparrow incident, the number of racist complaints have spiked.
