Grace Mugabe seeks immunity in S Africa assault case

Zimbabwe's first lady Grace Mugabe is seeking diplomatic immunity over allegations of assault in South Africa.

She has not commented since police began investigating her over the alleged assault. The police have declined to name Mugabe, a possible successor to her husband President Robert Mugabe, in the case as she has not yet appeared in court.

Mrs. Mugabe allegedly assaulted Gabriella Engels said to have been found with her children - Chatunga and Robert Junior - at a hotel in South Africa.

The ministry further said, "The suspect remains in South Africa and has not departed the republic, we are advised her itinerary includes amongst private matters, her attendance and participation at the scheduled SADC Heads of Sates/Governments Summit and Bi-lateral Diplomatic Meetings already underway in Pretoria".

"She has to be brought to order and indeed she has to appreciate that she is not a law unto herself", it added in a statement. The Mugabe brothers, who reside in South Africa, have been in the news recently about their lavish lifestyle in an upscale Johannesburg suburb, Sandton.
