Johannesburg – The police ministry has confirmed that Zimbabwe's first lady Grace Mugabe has not left the country.  

"The suspect's lawyers and her government representatives made verbal representations to SAPS investigators that the suspect wished to invoke diplomatic immunity cover and thus she elected to change her mind about the warning statement," the ministry said in a statement.  

It said on Tuesday Mugabe had made arrangements that she would hand herself over to police at 10:00.

She is expected to attend the SADC Heads of States/Governments Summit and Bi-lateral Diplomatic Meetings already underway in Pretoria. 

“Discussions with the suspect’s lawyers and the Zimbabwean High Commission representatives are taking place to make sure that the suspects is processed through the legal system,” the ministry said.
