HARARE – Zimbabwean state media reported that the wife of President Robert Mugabe has returned home from South Africa despite calls that she be prosecuted for allegedly assaulting a young model at a luxury hotel in Johannesburg.
The first lady received diplomatic immunity from the South African government.
It’s unclear whether she’ll face any disciplinary action but her alleged victim, Gabriella Engels, has threatened to slap Mugabe with a civil lawsuit.
State broadcaster ZBC says Grace Mugabe returned with her husband to Harare on an Air Zimbabwe flight on Sunday morning.
A ZBC report showed Grace Mugabe greeting government and military officials at the Harare airport.
