S.Africa issues arrest warrant for Grace Mugabe

Grace Mugabe faces South Africa arrest warrant

South African authorities issued an arrest warrant for Grace Mugabe, the wife of Zimbabwe's former leader who was accused of assaulting a woman in Johannesburg a year ago, South African police said Wednesday.

Mrs Mugabe, 53, reportedly attacked Gabriella Engels using an electrical extension cord at a luxury hotel in August previous year.

Mr Naidoo said the police was seeking Interpol's help to enforce the warrant, Reuters reports.

AfriForum has on Wednesday announced that an arrest warrant has been issued against Grace Mugabe for allegedly assaulting Gabriella Engels.

The warrant comes after a South Africa court annulled her diplomatic immunity in July.

"I can confirm that a warrant for the arrest of Grace Mugabe was issued last Thursday".

Police spokesperson Vish Naidoo says a process on the matter has been initiated with the global anti-criminal organisation.

According to the indictment , Alptekin paid Flynn's firm through wire transfers from a Turkish bank account in his name. Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment Monday charging two business associates of Michael T.

Engels suffered cuts and bruises to her head after Mugabe had reportedly found the model partying with her two sons at the hotel.

"In addition to that, we have initiated processes with Interpol".

In October, lobby group AfriForum, which represents Engels said one of the sons of former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe had allegedly been pressurising Engels to drop the charges against his mother. "She came in and started hitting us", Engels told local media previous year.

Elections in Zimbabwe in August were won by Mugabe's former righthand man in the ruling Zanu-PF party, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

There has been no immediate comment from Mugabe or from any authority in Harare.

Robert and Grace Mugabe have been living in virtual seclusion since his fall from power in November last year, after 37 years in office. "We believe that this sends out a strong message that nobody is above the law, not even if your surname is Mugabe", said Kallie Kriel, the group's CEO.

Grace has been seen as a potential success to her 94-year-old husband, Robert Mugabe, who has ruled the country since 1980.
