South Africa is currently gripped by the toughest game of ‘Where’s Wally’ ever seen on these shores.
Ever since she gave Fikile Mbulala a comedic slip yesterday and refused to report to court for assault charges, the Grace Mugabe case has descended into absolute farce.
Currently, she is in hiding after going back on her word to hand herself over to authorities after attacking Joburg model Gabrielle Engels with an extension cord on Sunday.
The president of Zimbabwe was due to attend the 37th SADC summit in Pretoria this week. It’s understood he had to change his travel plans to deal with the matter involving his wife.
Since yesterday, Grace has put in a stellar bid to become the hide and seek champion of 2017, leading us all on a wild goose chase for the last 30 hours:
The diplomatic immunity defence could be very problematic for the Mugabes, however: Grace was not visiting SA on official diplomatic business over the weekend when the attack took place. Therefore, she cannot claim immunity.
Maybe, just maybe, you wouldn’t need a technicality to protect you from anything if you had the human decency to not bludgeon someone with a plug.
