Twitter mocks 'detained' Grace Mugabe amid diplomatic moves

Twitter mocks 'detained' Grace Mugabe amid diplomatic moves

South Africa

South Africans are having a fun time on social media platform – Twitter, and the subject of their trolls is First Lady of Zimbabwe, Grace Mugabe.

The 52-year-old has been unable to leave South Africa since she arrived last week. She is in the middle of an assault case involving a 20-year-old model, Gabriella Engels.

The model says Mrs. Mugabe physically attacked her with an electric cord in an uptown Johannesburg hotel. Her crime was for “hanging out” with her two sons who school in the country.

The tweets mocking the First Lady range from the use of photos, GIFs, videos and quotations attributable to her.
