JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – Zimbabwe’s Grace Mugabe, has denied assaulting model Gabriella Engels in Johannesburg  last month, saying an “intoxicated and unhinged” Ms Engels attacked her with a knife. In an August 17 deposition, Ms Mugabe portrayed herself as the victim after intervening on behalf of her adult sons Chatunga and Robert Junior who were “in trouble with a drunken young woman”. The statement said Ms Mugabe was thinking about filing attempted murder charges. According to Ms Engels, an irate Ms Mugabe burst into the room where she was waiting with two friends on August 13 and started laying into her with an electric cable.
