Cape Town — Zimbabwean First Lady Grace Mugabe will appear in a Wynberg magistrate's court after she allegedly assaulted a 20-year-old model at a Sandton hotel, according Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula.

On August 13, Mugabe allegedly arrived with bodyguards and accused Gabriella Engels of living with her sons, Robert junior and Chatunga Bellarmine , both in their 20s, who are based in the affluent area of Sandton, Johannesburg.

Mugabe then allegedly attacked Engels with an extension cord, cutting her forehead and the back of her head, Engels tweeted, saying she and some friends were just "chilling" with the first lady's sons.

Although it has not yet been confirmed exactly what charges she will face, Mbalula confirmed that the first lady is not under arrest because she co-operated by handing herself over.
