Investigations into Sandton hotel assault involving Grace Mugabe


Police have confirmed that a 20-year-old South African woman was allegedly assaulted by Zimbabwe’s first lady, Grace Mugabe at a hotel in Sandton.

“The South African Police Service can confirm that after 16:00 yesterday, 14 August 2017, the 20-year-old woman registered a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm,” police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old apparently sustained injuries to her face.

Naidoo said the investigation into this case has already reached an advanced stage.

“The suspect in this matter cannot be named because she has not as yet appeared in court. We request that the SAPS be allowed to conduct a thorough investigation and to follow due process.”

The accused was due to appear in court today afternoon, but only her lawyers appeared. She apparently had left for Zimbabwe.
