Bob Mugabe flying in, could sort out his wife's legal woes
The Zimbabwean First Lady, Grace Mugabe was due to appear in court yesterday on a charge of assault but failed to do so.
Mugabe is accused of hitting 20-year-old Gabriella Engels whom she found with her sons at a Sandton Hotel on Sunday.
It was reported on Wednesday that Mugabe managed to leave South Africa but EWN confirms that she is in fact still in the country.
EWN reporter, Clement Manyathela, says Robert Mugabe will be landing in South Africa this afternoon to "try and deal with the situation".
Manyathyela says Mugabe's lawyers have been trying to negotiate with the South African Police Services to explain why she is unable to hand herself over.
He says the matter is now being dealt with at the highest level, with the involvement of President Jacob Zuma and the Department of International Relations.
Political analyst and co-director of the Confucius Institute, David Monyae, described this matter as a crisis.
This is a very unfortunate turn of events and it puts the Department of Foreign Affairs in a very awkward position.David Monyae, Independent political analyst
Monyae says the discussions happening behind the scenes should try to find the best way to resolve this issue.
At the centre of everything is the rule of law. We can't allow a situation, regardless of positions, entering the country and doing what she wants, beating up people ....David Monyae, Independent political analyst

He says the best way forward is for her to follow the due process of the law and appear in court.
