SA police silent on Grace Mugabe’s whereabouts
Grace Mugabe is accused of assaulting Gabriella Engels at a hotel on Sunday after finding her with her sons.
JOHANNESBURG – The police are remaining mum on the whereabouts of Zimbabwe's First Lady Grace Mugabe after she failed to hand herself over.
It’s understood that Mugabe was due to present herself at the Sandton Police Station on Tuesday but only her lawyer arrived.
She’s accused of assaulting Gabriella Engels at a hotel on Sunday after finding her with her sons.
While Mugabe is rumoured to be back in her home country, the South African Police Service (SAPS) told Eyewitness News late on Tuesday that they couldn’t confirm if the first lady was still here.
This is despite confirmation from the SAPS that the case against her was at an advanced stage.
On Tuesday, a senior prosecutor at the Randburg magistrate court confirmed he hadn’t received a docket from the police.
Justice Minister Michael Masutha told television news broadcaster eNCA on Tuesday that Mugabe was cooperating with authorities and said that the docket had not been finalised.
