The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has issued an arrest warrant for Zimbabwe’s former first lady Grace Mugabe, according to AfriForum.
AfriForum announced this during a press conference on Wednesday in Centurion.
“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.”
SAPS national spokesperson Vishnu Naidoo confirmed the arrest warrant was issued on December 13.
The DA and AfriForum applied to have Mugabe’s diplomatic immunity revoked after she allegedly assaulted South African model Gabriella Engels at a hotel in Johannesburg in 2017.
Mugabe allegedly assaulted Engels after she found the model partying with her two sons at a Sandton hotel.
Engels suffered serious injuries‚ including a gash on her forehead. While charges were laid‚ Mugabe was controversially allowed to leave the country after the government granted her diplomatic immunity.
