The wife of Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe is facing legal action after being accused of attacking a young woman at a party in South Africa.
The 52-year-old Mrs Grace Mugabe allegedly attacked and beat up 20-year-old Gabriella Engels a model with an extension cord after finding her in a hotel with her two sons, Robert Mugabe Jr, 25, and Chatunga Mugabe, 21.
The 20-year-old model tweeted a picture of a wound on her head claiming it was caused by the first lady after she had been ‘partying’ with her sons in Johannesburg’s up-market Sandton district.
She claimed Mrs Mugabe entered the room with about 10 bodyguards who looked on and did nothing whiles she was attacked by the first lady.
According to her, ‘She split my head open in 3 places with an extension cord and used the plug to hit me.’
Fikile Mbalula South African Police Minister told reporters that he expected to get a report from investigators on Tuesday and that Mrs Mugabe could be arrested.
Mr Mugabe’s sons were previously living in Dubai but allegedly relocated to South Africa earlier this year over ‘security concerns’ amid rumours of drug and alcohol use.
