K-Word passenger apologises and blame her racist rant on apartheid education

A woman who thrown off the Kulula flight on after another passenger heard her call the pilot the K-word apologises and blames schooling for her racist rant.

Her fellow passenger‚ Reverend Solumuzi Mabuza‚ was the person who called out the Midrand woman for using the k-word. Moodley‚ 26‚ who was subsequently removed from the Kulula flight from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo to King Shaka airport in Durban two weeks ago‚ initially told the Sowetan that she had used the slur out of frustration.

In a first-time mediation meeting between Mabuza and Moodley‚ hosted by well-known anti-apartheid activist and religious leader Bishop Rubin Phillip on Tuesday‚ Moodley apologised for her post.

She said: “My school curriculum did not teach me of the atrocities of apartheid. Any mention of it was in passing without the details of the oppression‚ especially of black people in this country.”

“During this time of introspection I have made enquiries as to why this word is so offensive. I am appalled.”
