Johannesburg - Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe has handed herself over to police after she allegedly assaulted a 20-year-old model with an extension cord in Sandton at the weekend.

"[She] is not under arrest because she co-operated, and handed herself over to police," Police Minister Fikile Mbalula told eNCA.

She is expected to appear in court later on Tuesday.

The latest development comes after a Johannesburg mother has demanded that Zimbabwe's first lady Grace Mugabe be thrown into jail for allegedly going berserk and beating up her 20-year-old daughter at a Sandton hotel at the weekend.

An incensed Debbie Engels, the mother of Gabriella - who was allegedly assaulted by Zimbabwe's first lady - told The Star on Monday that her daughter was left shaken by the incident.

"We're at the police at the moment to open a case. But my daughter is shaken up by what happened," she said.

Gabriella claimed to have been attacked by Mugabe on Sunday night while the latter was visiting her two sons, Robert jr and Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe, at their upmarket hotel in Sandton.

"She was in pain and couldn't talk. She was only able to tell me what happened after she was given the medication for shock at the hospital," Debbie said.

"At the time I didn't know who attacked her, but like any mother, I was upset about it. Gabriella's friends told me what happened."

Debbie said her daughter and two of her friends were sitting in a room adjacent to that of Mugabe's sons before the attack happened.

"I immediately took her to the police station but they said they wanted a medical form before opening a case," Debbie said.

Mugabe allegedly used an extension cord to assault Gabriella and her two friends while the two sons and Mugabe's bodyguards stood idle.

In a series of tweets detailing the incident, Gabriella questioned: "What is a girl compared to a woman beating you and 10+ bodyguards standing back, leaving her to do this s**t."

"She split my head open in three places with an extension cord and used the plug to hit me."

A Zimbabwean news outlet reported that Mugabe was in the country for a treatment following a "freak accident" in which she injured her right ankle when she made the impromptu visit to her son's hotel.

Mugabe's spokesperson, George Charamba, could not be reached for comment after numerous phone calls were made, but Zimbabwe Embassy consul-general Henry Mukonoweshuro said he did not know about the incident.

However, the Twitter account of Zimbabwe's ruling party, Zanu-PF, confirmed the incident and appeared to paint the 20-year-old young woman as the aggressor. - Online Sources
