Grace Mugabe Diplomatic Immunity Challenge Set To Be Heard

Lobby group Afriforum’s challenge against the decision by South Africa’s Minister of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation to grant diplomatic immunity to former Zimbabwe first lady Grace Mugabe in an assault case last year, is set to be heard in the North Gauteng High Court on Thursday and Friday.

AfriForum legal representative Willie Spies said the challenge is the first process to have Grace prosecuted for the alleged assault on South African model, Gabrielle Engels, with an electric cord after finding her in a hotel room with her two sons at an upmarket Sandton hotel. Said Spies:

Should AfriForum be successful in having this diplomatic immunity to Mugabe set aside, it will pave the way for the NPA to take steps to ultimately prosecute Mugabe. AfriForum indicated earlier that its private prosecuting unit under the leadership of Advocate Gerrie Nel stands ready to institute private prosecution should the NPA decide not to prosecute Mugabe.
