[LISTEN] 20-year-old SA woman traumatised by Grace Mugabe's assault
Zimbabwe’s first lady, Grace Mugabe, allegedly assaulted a 20-year-old South African model in a Sandton hotel.
The young woman was reportedly spending time with Mugabe’s two adult sons when their mother walked in with an extension cord and just started beating her with it.
Gabriella Engels says she didn't know who Grace was when she stormed the hotel room and started beating her up.
She says she met Mugabe's son Bellarmine for the first time on Saturday and didn't know who he was prior to meeting him.
She says she opened an assault case against Mugabe.
