Earlier this month War Veteran's Secretary General Victor Matemadanda came out on social media to poke fun at Grace and her mothering skills, tormenting her that she should look after her own troublesome kids first before the rest of Zimbabwe.

IOL reported that Angela Botha from Kommetjie acted as a link between the beauty school's principal, Shirley Wenman and AfriForum.

Botha said she considered Engels to be a courageous role model. "We want people to use social media to develop the party", said Chombo. Her fight then became my cause. "The police will be investigating that issue and if one is found wearing such T-Shirts the police will see whether there is no denunciation or undermining of the President and if one is found wanting they will be taken to Chikurubi prison where they will be taught how to stay peacefully with others", said Chombo.

Wenman praised Engels for standing up to Mugabe.

"After reading about how Mugabe hit her and seeing the wounds, my heart broke. I then read that she has refused a bribe, and I said I needed to do something to show I admire her", Wenman said.


If Engels accepts the course, she will be studying in Parktown Johannesburg.

"Her trauma counsellor will discuss it with her later this week".

"As youths we follow our mother's footsteps, who has every right to discipline anyone", ZANU PF youth leader Kudzanayi Chipanga told ruling-party supporters.

The march was spearheaded by members of the Zanu PF Youth League and backed by the Women's League and some top party officials following public attacks on Mrs. Mugabe, who sought diplomatic immunity after police in South Africa asked the first lady to hand herself to the police after allegedly assaulting Gabriella Engels. The decision was made by International Relations and Co-operation Minister, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane to grant Mugabe immunity.

Mugabe used an extension cord to assault Engels and her two friends, while the two sons and Mugabe's bodyguards stood by and watched. They also want the court to declare that the decision to grant Mugabe immunity doesn't mean she won't be prosecuted.
