Legal experts say the assault case against Zimbabwe's first lady, Grace Mugabe, should be handled like any other criminal case.
"Her case will be treated like any other case," said constitutional law expert Shadrack Gutto.
He said if the first lady was travelling with her husband, President Robert Mugabe, then there would be a possibility of diplomatic immunity.

The Zimbabwe Communist Party in Gauteng is outside the Randburg Magistrate's Court where First Lady of Zimbabwe Grace Mugabe is expected to appear.
Mugabe is accused of allegedly beating a model with an extension cord in Sandton.
The woman, 20-year-old Gabriella Engels, said the incident happened during a visit with Mugabe’s two sons Robert and Chatunga at the Capital 20 West Hotel.
"When Grace entered I had no idea who she was. She walked in with an extension cord and just started beating me with it," Engels told News24 over the phone on Monday.
Outside the court, general secretary of the Zimbabwe Communist Party in Gauteng, Ngqabutho Nicholas Mabhena, was speaking to the media.
Mabhena accused Mugabe of being a violent person.
"She has a record of assualting individuals. We think she has a problem with managing her anger. We recommend that she goes for counselling so that she is able to manage her anger."
He said the party is not "surprised at all" over the alleged assault incident. "We call her Dr Stop It."
