WHILE First Lady Grace Mugabe might have escaped prosecution in South Africa after she allegedly assaulted a 20 year model, Gabrielle Engels, a week ago there is a feeling that President Mugabe should have offered a public apology on behalf of his wife.

Former South Africa Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela remarked in Sandton on Sunday that Mugabe should have publicly apologised.

"No amount of provocation entitles you to harm a person."[It] was appalling for a neighbour to come and assault a [South African] citizen," Madonsela said.

"Citizens should know that they would be protected regardless of who harms them. We need our leaders to stand up for that."
