Grace Mugabe's victim won't drop charges

Grace Mugabe's victim won't drop charges
Published: 16 August 2017 (713 Views)
The woman who opened an assault case against Grace Mugabe says she wants justice not only for her but for others who also claim to have been victims of the Zimbabwean first lady in the past.

Gabriella Engels says that no level of intimidation will make her drop the assault case against Mugabe.

Engels and two other friends were allegedly assaulted at a Sandton hotel on Sunday.

The 20-year-old Engels says she's aware of Grace Mugabe's history of alleged abuse and wants her to face a court of law.

In 2009, a photographer claimed he was punched repeatedly by Mugabe in Hong Kong.

Engels says this can't be allowed.

"I just hope that the fact that I'm being strong enough to speak against her and that means I can be the voice for other people who she assaulted."

Engels says although she has not received any calls personally intimidating her to drop the charges, she fears leaving her house.
