South African authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the wife of Zimbabwe's former leader, Grace Mugabe after she allegedly assaulted a model.
Zimbabwe's first lady barged into a Johannesburg hotel and allegedly assaulted a South African model. In Zimbabwe, however, the greater concern is over what her political aspirations mean for the country.
Zimbabwe's first lady was sought by police for allegedly attacking a 20-year-old model at a Johannesburg hotel.
According to a senior government source, Zimbabwe's first lady will not be arrested over an assault amid a possible diplomatic rift with South Africa. The country has put up "red alert" border posts to prevent her from fleeing.
