A model in South Africa has shown injuries she received this past week from Grace Mugabe; the First Lady of Zimbabwe who went on a rampage in a South Africa Hotel when she found her sons in the company of 3 women. Gabriela Engels showed the deep cut at a press conference with her Mother and her lawyer present. The 2 other women have not been named; nor has a hotel waitress who was pushed to the ground by one of the Mugabe sons in his rush to avoid his mother. The woman was taken to hospital where she miscarried.
The attack took place in Sandton's The Capital 20 West hotel.
The woman said that at the time she did not know who her assailant was or why she and her friends were being beaten.
"I really thought she was going to kill me ... From the moment she stormed into the room she was ready to murder someone," the woman said. "The electrical cord-cable was tightly wrapped around her hands. No one could stop her. The guards and hotel security guards just stood there and watched as she whipped me with the cord and dragged me across the floor by my hair."
After high level talks between both governments, Ms Engels was thrown under the bus by her own government as it granted Diplomatic Immunity to Grace Mugabe and let her leave the country with no charges. This came after all air traffic ceased between the two countries until the Immunity was granted.
