This was the question posed by Judge Bashir Vally yesterday following applications by the DA and AfriForum asking the court to declare the decision by the State to grant Mugabe spousal immunity as invalid and unlawful.
Yesterday’s court application came after Joburg model Gabriella Engels laid criminal charges of assault against Mugabe.
This, after an assault on her on August 10 in a Sandton hotel. Mugabe allegedly attacked Engels with an electric cord while in the presence of her sons.
The model sustained a serious injury to her forehead.
