Racist Attack: South African Model, Miriam Ngomani Beaten For Dating A White Man

South African model, Mirriam Ngomani experienced a bizarre racist attack which left her leg badly damaged and also got her admitted to a Pretoria hospital where she's expected to undergo surgery.

Ngomani had the first confrontation with the man said to be in his 20s, while she was with her fiancé Tobias Zehetleitner at Time Square in Menlyn. It was gathered that the man took offence with their display of affection, as they were holding hands.

"I asked what he was doing and he said 'what is wrong with you? You're dating a monkey'," Zehetleitner told Sowetan.

However after their paths crossed again while leaving a casino, he began spewing racial slurs at Ngomani. 

"I walked up to him and tried to reprimand him" Zehetleitner said.  Zehetleitner got punched in the face and when he retaliated, he was attacked by the man's four friends who knocked him down and also assaulted Ngomani.

While Zehetleitner passed out and suffered injuries to his head and face, Ngomani needed to be treated for a broken left leg. They have reportedly made a complaint at Tshwane police.

"We will pursue a civil matter, they have to learn that they can't just beat up people in a racist attack. It makes me sick, It's disgusting," Ngomani said from her hospital bed.

"I'm so scared and terrified my legs have been scarred and I don't know if I will ever be able to show them off and do my modelling with the scars," she added. ''
