THE man who began talking about compensation to Gabriella Engels, 20, the Johannesburg woman allegedly assaulted by Zimbabwe first lady Grace Mugabe last Sunday, says he is an "independent mediator". Independent Media spoke with him on Saturday and he was hostile to begin with, but later sent an SMS: “When the time is right we will give you an interview. We are a team of independent mediators. Born and bred eMzansi. Thanks for the call.”He would not reveal his name.
