Johannesburg - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is travelling to South Africa today to attend the 37th summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), giving him the opportunity to come to the rescue of his embattled wife Grace who is holed up in Johannesburg following a hotel brawl.
Contrary to false media reports that Zimbabwe’s first lady - who faces a charge of criminal assault after brutally attacking two young ladies she suspected of cohabiting with her two sons in Sandton - has fled to Harare, she is still holed up in South Africa, African Independent can reveal.
Last night, impeccable sources in Harare close to the Mugabe family said the Zimbabwean president and his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma have been in contact over the embarrassing saga which threatens to complicate relations between the two countries.
We can also reveal that President Mugabe is today expected to chair a Cabinet meeting in the Zimbabwean capital before flying to South Africa.
Legal advisors have told Grace that although she can easily evade the assault charge she faces by slipping out of South Africa, she could be declared a fugitive, making it near-impossible for her to visit that country again.
