First lady Grace Mugabe has been granted diplomatic immunity despite facing assault charges in South Africa. She assaulted a 20 year old model Gabriella Engels at Sandton hotel few days ago.

Democratic Alliance says it will demand a parliament’s enquiry into government decision to grant Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe diplomatic immunity. Mugabe left South Africa alongside her husband President Robert Mugabe, the couple was supposed to attend a funeral of one ZANU PF veteran who passed away.

Zakhele Mbhele, DA spokesperson on police says the Zimbabwean first lady is not entitled to diplomatic immunity “We find this to be a complete outrage we are having an exact repetition of the same episode as with the president of Sudan Omar Al Bashir, there was a clear case of a criminal endugnment being faced by individual but we had our government yet again allowing this people to escape justice and to be varied accountability," said Zakhele.

The victim’s family says they will fight for their daughter to get justice. Engels family said turning down financial compensation shows believe in justice and they are not willing to be bought irrespective of their financial status.

“ I’m uphold that another mother can do what she did and then just walk away scot free without apology, nothing whatsoever and just carry on with your life. I’m uphold that this woman thinks that she is god and that she’s invincible to do whatever, walking into the country and do whatever she wants and then just walk away scot free’’ said the mother Debbie Engels.

Lawyers representing the 20 year old Gabriella says they will approach the high court challenging the government’s decision.
