Wife of the former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, Grace Mugabe wanted in South Africa for assaulting a model in the country.
It was revealed on Wednesday that the National Prosecuting Authority of South Africa had issued an arrest warrant against Mrs. Mugabe for allegedly assaulting a model, Gabriella Engels at a hotel in Johannesburg in 2017.
Minority rights group AfriForum announced this during a press conference, reports Timeslive.
“We can report that the warrant of arrest has been issued for Grace Mugabe,” said AfriForum CEO Kallie Kriel.
“It seems that justice is going to take place and we are looking forward to this matter going forward.”

Mrs. Mugabe allegedly assaulted Engels after she found the model partying with her two sons at a Sandton hotel.
The South African government had in August accepted a court ruling declaring the diplomatic immunity granted to Mrs. Mugabe as invalid. The matter was then referred back to the NPA.
