Former Pistorius Prosecutor Could Take Up Private Case Against Grace Mugabe

Former South African state prosecutor Gerrie Nel said on Thursday he was ready to represent Gabriella Engels, the 20-year-old model who has accused Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe of whipping her with an electric cord.


Nel, who laid out the murder case against Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, said the Engels family had been approached by a third party to accept a cash settlement "for this to go away", but gave no details.

"The family is not interested in doing that," said Nel.

Nel resigned from the state prosecutor's office in January and joined a civic group that aims to bring private prosecutions in criminal cases that the state opts not to pursue.
