Grace Mugabe, Zimbabwe's first lady and the woman accused of assaulting a 20-year-old model in South Africa, has reportedly purchased a R45 million mansion in Johannesburg, The Star reported on Thursday.
She bought the 9249 square-metre property in Sandhurst through a shelf company in February. A property expert reportedly told The Star that the property was transferred to Grace Mugabe in May.
The property reportedly has a summer house, six reception rooms, four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a koi pond and a two bedroomed cottage pool.
The property was reportedly guarded by Zimbabwean security guards this week. Grace also reportedly rented a R25 million mansion in Sandhurst on a year's lease earlier this year.
Political analyst Brian Raftopoulos told The Star that Grace's recent property shopping showed she was "uncertain about her future". Grace has reportedly spent a lot of time in South Africa since her family left their R500 000-per-month Dubai home.
Last year, Grace reportedly bought a R58 million mansion in Harare.
On Wednesday, Robert Mugabe arrived in South Africa in what appeared to be an attempt to avoid a diplomatic fallout over the assault charges his wife is facing.
