Gerrie Nel sets sights on Grace Mugabe

Private prosecutor Gerrie Nel is preparing to offer his help to the Johannesburg model who accused Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe of assault.

Private prosecutor Gerrie Nel is preparing to offer his help to the Johannesburg model who accused Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe of assault.

Nel is one of this country’s top criminal prosecutors. He successfully prosecuted former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi for corruption and Paralympian Pistorius for murder.

There is a seeming impasse SA authorities and Mugabe’s team‚ as it is believed she is seeking diplomatic immunity after she was accused of assaulting the 20-year old woman on Sunday night.

The alleged assault had taken place at the Capital 20 West in Sandton.

The alleged victim Gabriella Engels‚ said Mugabe had beat her with an electrical extension cord and opened a case of assault against Mugabe on Monday.

Nel will announce how he plans to intervene later on Thursday.

AfriForum issued a media advistory stating: “Advocate Nel will announce at the conference what steps will be taken to support Ms Engels.”

Gerrie Nel
Nel is one of this country’s top criminal prosecutors. He successfully prosecuted former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi for corruption and Paralympian Pistorius for murder.

When he began his new job under the helm of the civil society group AfriForum in February – heading a private prosecutions team intended to bring justice to South Africa’s political and economic untouchables – Nel said he firmly believes in the South African justice system and this is a way of assisting the National Prosecuting Authority.

He said it would not attempt to be a parallel justice system – it is a team that would only pick up cases which the NPA selects not to prosecute.

Late last month‚ The Times reported AfriForum’s private prosecutions unit had two potential cases in its sights.

The group’s CEO‚ Kallie Kriel‚ confirmed that the tenacious Nel’s unit was preparing to pursue a criminal as well as a corruption case for private prosecution.

Kriel said they were putting a lot of effort into preparing the cases‚ with an announcement planned in the next three months. TimesLive

  • Dont play around Bob ….

  • Hohoho Gerrie After polishing his own name now …they say he is a Bulldozer but Gigi’s lawyers drive bulldozers man so get your handkerchief ready

  • To all the Zimbabweans who are supporting Grace Mugabe for exporting violence into South Africa you need brain transplant.Gerrie Nel must grill this lady at least the South African government got a taste of the intimidation of oppposition supporters by ZanuPf which is led by Grace’s husband.Recentry a ZanuPf member addressing a rally told the people that even if ZanuPf loses the elections they wont relinguish power instead they will declare war because they got keys to the armoury.Why should we support her on a crime she committed.Don’t bring recism where it doesn’t fit.We lost a lot of friends and relatives under ZanuPf.How do we exclude the first family from all the violence which took place in the country if the mother of the nation is such a violent person?.Zvimwe muchinyarawo imimi,rudo rwenyu runoshamisa.Even vakauraya munongo supporter nxaaaa.

    • Well said bro.

  • Here comes revenge of chasing out whites in the farms

  • south africans knows human rights..unlike mugabe and his evil systerm in zim..its hellfire to be in zim..the remand prisons there are where you eats with the devil.

  • mr gerrie must teach that drug user of a woman a good lesson of her life time.

  • Gerr Nel you are a small boy. You are now playing with fire .You get off your fake high horse. These are wrong people .We are watching you. this not your fight.

  • isu tinotomira namai vedu zvichioma zvichirwadza ,chii chinoshamisira pakubuditswa turopa apa vamwe vans veZimbabwe vachipiswa kuSA

  • This has created a big headache for Zuma Govnment on one side he wants to help a friend and fellow comrade on the other there is pressure from civic organisations and the world to do the right thing , eish Grace and her boys !

  • I remember this guy on the oscar trial he is something else

    • Anozorodzwa neZanu uyo aita mutete hatitsigire hedu zvakaitika asi

    • Did he win?
      Isnt it that oscar lost?
      Anyway his help is only due to the fact that a white person was beaten senseless by a black person.
      Worse of all a black person from zimbabwe that they consider to be scum.
      How many sasafrican gelz r in nid of free legal representation. .
      Kure uku

  • Thank you Mr justice must prevail I hate grace that’s why she is married to a man double if not triple her age

  • You are now trying to cross the sea on foot

  • I also offer my support m behind u Gerrie im so saddened by this pple who think dat bitch is above the law this is nt Singapore

  • Uuum yaa the grace drama continues the issue z now political can grace come out wher she z hiding nd tel her side of story bf the issue complicate the friendship of the two countries cz wher it stands nou it jst want to give msholozi wabantu and anc part another head ache since they hv their own pblms.i think Grace was suppose by now done a damage control by myb apologizing to the frmly of the kid nd SA gvmnt by so doing myb it was going to be luked other way.

  • If I may ask to those who know law hw mny yrs fo assult case?

  • Patai swima kare pane kwainzi kuDeep end ….let the sleeping dogs lie Ziiii zvangu

  • Saka vanoda ivo masouth africans kuita basa rekuuraya mazimbabweans vasina zvavanoitwa

  • Whites must leave blacks to sort their issues alone…..let them not to mix FARM INVASIONS with this issue. Lots of whites are beating blacks they turn blind eyes …last week whites forced blacks in coffins …Gerrie kept quiet why?

  • Is she her Daugher-in-law to be?She should just hamble herself,it was there long back,these Grudges betwwen Mother in laws and Daughter in laws

  • Which ever way the case goes a wrong is a wrong and right is right,

  • White must live blacks to solve our issues. They are offering help because they want to score political points in SA. 6 white men attacked a black couple and 2 white men put a black boy in a coffin they never even come close now because its Grace mugabe they offer help mmmmm racial and fighting for whites who loose their farms 😅😅😅

  • Go Gerrie we are with you through thick n thin 🤗

    • Are you sending some legal fees love? Handei tese lol

  • Will mobilise with fellow black Africans to stand with Dr Amai coz yave nyaya yerace.

  • Long arm?

  • All I see in these comments is racism. 😢

  • Gerrie Nel took the feared South African police commissioner Jackie selebi to jail he went for Oscar pistorius so intimidation does not exist in his vocabulary him being a private prosecutor is gud news coz the issue of diplomatic immunity will be put to the test justice must be served maybe our country zim might learn a thing or two that judiciary is a separate arm of the state that requires independence

  • We do have 5star rated hotels in Zim, so what were they doing in Sandton those two rascals, after all their Sekuru bob allways preach about people to stop going to ZA so whats the fuss here???? Grace must fall period!!!!
