Gabriela Engels and her family members are making plans to sue the  Zim First Lady Grace Mugabe for brutally assaulting her on Sunday.

The family is consulting with lawyers to lodge an urgent court application against Grace Mugabe on the matter for R10 000 000.

Grace Mugabe who is now officially a fugitive from justice in South Africa after failing to pitch up in court to answer charges on two counts of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm reportedly sneaked out of the country.

Engels claims that as a model the scars left on her body after the assaults by Mugabe with an electric cable will grossly affect her modelling career hence the huge claim against the First Lady.

“I am a model, with this scar over my face my whole career is ruined,” an emotional Engels said.

“I don’t know how far this case will go but I just want my voice to be heard because what she did wasn’t right,” Engels said.

“She flipped and just kept beating me with the plug. Over and over. I had no idea what was going on. I was surprised. I needed to crawl out of the room before I could run away. Her ten bodyguards just stood there watching, no one did anything, no one tried to help me. There was blood everywhere. Over my arms, in my hair, everywhere.”

Engels said she had not been contacted by either Mugabe or her children following the incident.

She said she is unable to “deal” with the trauma she experienced.

“I don’t know how to deal with this, but I am trying hard. I am trying so hard to be strong.”
