South African lobby group AfriForum said on Wednesday that it has learnt that a warrant of arrest has been issued against former Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe.
Mugabe is being accused of assaulting South African model Gabriella Engels at a hotel in Sandton in August 2017, allegedly with an electrical extension cord. South African Police Service spokesman Vishnu Naidoo confirmed the development to Reuters adding that police were seeking Interpol’s help to enforce the warrant.
The South African government had granted Grace Mugabe diplomatic immunity. The immunity was overturned by a South African court this year after the Engels, challenged the decision.
