A listener called into The John Maytham Show and argued that he wanted to know what Gabriela Engels had done to trigger Grace Mugabe to alleged assault her.
John Maytham's frustration with the caller was evident as he tried to explain that nothing warranted any type of abuse.
Mugabe is facing criminal charges after she allegedly assaulted Gabriela Engels with an electric cord at a Sandton hotel on Sunday.
The Zimbabwean government has invoked diplomatic immunity and is now awaiting a response from the International Relation's Department.
Does anybody know what Gabriela was up to in that hotel room in Santon?— Caller Ray, Cape Town
Why does that matter demanded John?
I'm annoyed with you Ray, you are victim shaming. You are implying that if she was there to have a couple of drinks or to have sex with them, then Grace Mugabe beating her up the way she did is cool!— John Maytham, CapeTalk host
There is no possible mitigating factor to allow assault said an emotional and angry John.
