Grace Mugabe court case continues in Pretoria today


The case in which several groups including the Democratic Alliance, the leading opposition party in South  Africa , and Afriforum, a minority, mainly Afrikaaner, rights group, are challenging the granting of diplomatic immunity to  former Zimbabwe First Lady Grace Mugabe continues at the High Court in Pretoria today.

The case arose after Grace Mugabe allegedly assaulted Johannesburg model Gabriella Engels after she found her in the company of her two sons at a luxury hotel in the posh suburb of Sandton in August last year.

Grace was still the country’s First Lady.

The South African government argues it did not grant Grace Mugabe diplomatic immunity but merely recognised her existing diplomatic standing.
