PRETORIA - The South African Police Service (SAPS) on Wednesday confirmed that a warrant of arrest has been issued for Grace Mugabe - Zimbabwe's former first lady.
"It is true, we issued the warrant of arrest last week," national SAPS spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo told African News Agency in Pretoria.
"In addition to that, we have initiated processes with Interpol. There's is not much I can tell you at this stage regarding the Interpol process."
Mugabe allegedly assaulted model Gabriella Engels at a South African hotel in August last year, but has claimed that she acted in self-defence.
In October, lobby group AfriForum, which represents Engels said one of the sons of former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe had allegedly been pressurising Engels to drop the charges against his mother.
