A TRIP to the gym turned into a nightmare for Metro FM public relations and communications manager Happy Ngidi.

The distraught media practitioner said she was still shocked by Tuesday’s incident.

“I went to Constantia Kloof gym on Tuesday morning and after finishing my work-out, I walked to my car.Happy Ngidi

“While reversing, I was confronted by an angry white male. He shouted, ‘what the f**k is your problem b***h! What is your problem? You bloody k****r.

“‘You baboon! I will f**k you up. Who do you think you are dealing with? What the f**k are you looking at?'” Ngidi explained as she relived what had happened.

She said when the police arrived and walked with her inside the gym to identify the accused [whose name is known to Sowetan], he kept on hurling insults at her regardless of the police’s presence.

‘”Oh, you have called the police? I am so scared! What the f**k are they going to do. I have lots of money my girl. I will make all this go away, and I will make you go away! You have messed with the wrong guy! I will f**k you up! You are talking s**t! I never said k****r to you!”‘ she explained.

Ngidi said she opened a case of crimen injuria at the Honeydew police station.

Virgin Active South Africa spokesman Les Aupiais expressed shock and dismay.

He said the abusive man has since been banned from Virgin Active for life.

Honeydew police station spokesman Warrant Officer Karen Jacobs confirmed that a case of crimen injuria has been opened.

Jacobs said the docket will be forwarded to the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court for a decision.
