One of the men arrested after the murder of honeymooning tourist Anni Dewani was expected to appear in court again on Thursday.

Xolile Mngeni, 26, of Khayelitsha, did not have a lawyer at his last appearance in the Wynberg Regional Court last week and the case was postponed to allow him to get representation.

Dewani, 28, and her husband, Shrien, were reportedly hijacked in the Cape Town township of Gugulethu last weekend.

Shrien was released unharmed but his wife was shot dead and her body was found in the abandoned vehicle on Sunday morning.

Magistrate Jackie Redelinghuys told Mngeni at his last appearance that he was also being charged with robbery with aggravating circumstances.

“The State alleges in your case that you committed murder, and that the death of the victim was caused during the commission of a robbery with aggravating circumstances, or committed by a group of people acting in common purpose,” the magistrate said. - Sapa
