Dewani suspect has tumour surgery
Tuesday 14 June 2011
One of two men in police custody for the murder of the honeymooner Anni Dewani, from Bristol, has had surgery to remove a brain tumour, the Wynberg Regional Court in Cape Town heard.
Xolile Mngeni is in hospital, Rodney de Kock, the director for public prosecutions in the Western Cape, told the court where he was due to appear. The other suspect, Mziwamadoda Qwabe, was remanded in custody until 2 August.
Mrs Dewani was shot dead last year in Gugulethu township near Cape Town. South African police claim her husband, Shrien, paid four men to shoot his 28-year-old bride in a taxi in Cape Town on 13 November in a staged hijacking.
Mr Dewani, a 31-year-old care-home owner, denies any wrongdoing and is fighting extradition.
