Grace Mugabe, the first lady of Zimbabwe who has always been rumored to take over for her husband as the country's next president, turned herself in to South African police on Tuesday after a model accused her of physical assault.
Amid confusion over the case and investigation, the police statement said yesterday's abortive court hearing was meant to obtain a statement from Ms Mugabe, along with her version of the events.
Zimbabwean First LadyGrace Mugabe's lawyers believe that she qualifies for diplomatic immunity in the assault case against her, South African police say.
Naidoo said that the negotiations that led to an earlier statement by police minister Fikile Mbalula that Mugabe had handed herself over didn't materialise as planned.
The determined young lady who had gone into the hotel where Grace Mugabe attacked her at the invitation of Bellamine one of Mugabe's sons claims she did not know that the boy was Mugabe's son neither that Grace was Mugabe's wife until after the incident.
The Zimbabwean Mail reported the First Lady was in the country to have her foot looked at after an incident at the Harare International airport a few weeks ago.
Engels posted several photos on social media showing a gash in her forehead, which she called a result of the alleged encounter. "My two friends and I were beat up in a room with 10+ men leaving her to do it", she tweeted with references to Mrs Mugabe's bodyguards. "I only found out this after I came out the hotel room".
South Africa'sNews24 reports that Mrs. Mugabe cooperated with the police and was therefore not arrested.
She regularly speaks at rallies in Zimbabwe and is seen as a possible contender to take over from her increasingly frail husband.
