Wits University Vice Chancellor Adam Habib told Radio 702 on Thursday that if Mugabe was not charged, Pretoria should at least bar her from entering South Africa "for the foreseeable future".

The Zimbabwe's first lady deserves CAJ News Africa's Social Media Award of the Week.

She failed to appear and the next day the police ministry announced this was because she and the Zimbabwean government had chose to invoke diplomatic immunity.

Ms Engels lodged a complaint with the police on Monday, following which Ms Mugabe was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday afternoon.

South African police have issued a "red alert" at its borders to ensure Mugabe doesn't leave undetected.

"We had already put tabs on the borders in relation to her leaving the country", the minister said.

Heaping great praise on Mugabe, they further report that - despite evidence she has done no such thing thus far - she "surrendered herself to the police so that this high-clientele drug dealer could be arrested".

The Police Ministry says it will not be arresting Mugabe until it receives an official indication from Dirco.

Justice minister Michael Masutha told Reuters he was attending a meeting on Wednesday evening to discuss the matter but declined to give details.

The pretty model has lawyered up with Gerrie Nel, the prosecutor who secured a murder conviction against double amputee Olympic track star Oscar Pistorius.

Legal experts also say that Grace has gone to South Africa for treatment on her foot and that prosecutors could decide not to follow the case if they conclude that the victim's injuries are minor.

"It's not about money. Over and over", Engels said. "And the granting of diplomatic immunity would transgress the law", chief executive Kallie Kriel said.

Engels has said she "did not lift a finger on the first lady" and told local media: "We were chilling in a hotel room, and [the sons] were in the room next door".

"What is likely to happen is that she will be allowed to go back home, and then we announce that we've granted diplomatic immunity and wait for somebody to challenge us", the source said. "We are waiting the outcome before we can move on to the next step".

The M&G understands that advice from lawyers consulted by the South African government indicates that the nature of Mugabe's visit and the circumstances around the alleged assault disqualify the first lady from diplomatic immunity. Zimbabwe's ambassador to Pretoria, Isaac Moyo, did not answer his phone.

South African authorities are debating whether to grant Mugabe diplomatic immunity which Zimbabwe's government has requested.

It isn't the first time Zimbabwe has dominated the regional meeting for the wrong reasons.

It was only after she was escorted to the exit by a security guard that she said she discovered Grace Mugabe's identity: "I asked him who the woman was because I wanted to lay a case against her". "She walked in with an extension cord and just started beating me with it".
