‘How could anyone say I killed her?’

Shrien Dewani has poured his heart out in an exclusive interview with The Sun newspaper.

The millionaire businessman whose newlywed wife was murdered in a hijacking while they were on honeymoon in Cape Town has hit out at speculation he may have been involved in her killing.

Shrien Dewani, 30, from Bristol, and his Swedish-born wife Anni, 28, were married in Mumbai, India earlier this month. They were on the Cape Town leg of their honeymoon when they were hijacked at about 11pm last Saturday after apparently deciding on a whim to turn off the N2 from Somerset West to check out Gugulethu’s nightlife.

Police say at the start of the hijacking the criminals dropped off the driver and later dropped Shrien Dewani off in Harare, Khayelitsha. His wife was found murdered early on Sunday morning. She had been shot at least three times.

 

Despite three men, including the taxi driver, being arrested Dewani has found himself the subject of rumours that he may have played a part in the killing.

"It was the end of my world. I feel like I've been robbed of the rest of my life," Dewani told The Sun in an exclusive interview.

“I searched high and low for my perfect partner.

“Anni was the 'One'. Her looks, her laughter her personality, her spirit - everything about her was right for me. Why would I want to kill her?

“People who suggest this could not have seen us together. Saying I was somehow involved simply defies logic,” he told the British tabloid.

Anni’s father has also leapt to the defence of his son-in-law.

According to the Daily Mail, Vinod Hindocha said he loves Dewani “like a son” and will support him through the “horrendous ordeal”. - IOL

Guys,I'm a resident at Cape Town ad I visit Khayelitsha evryday and I'm priviledged to share this info with you's. One of the guys investigating the case happened to be my friend and confidante. When Gen. Bheki Cele called looking for an update, I was with them. Quick Low Down and priviledge info: The guys taht executed the woman were called by the driver alleging to have some work for them.The one arrested first didn't shoot but the second guy to be arrested actually fired the shots.Both guys are from Site C-Khayelitsha but cannot reveal their nick names for security. The driver was literally asked by the husband to organize hitmen and was paid R4000.00... Cops can't just link the hubby to the entire ordeal based on the suspect's verdict, hence a deal ahs to be striked with the driver coz the only way to get a bigger fish [hubby] in this instance is via arresting the driver.. So this guy is gonna go down the drain, sooner or later, it's only a matter of time... Don't say I didn't tell you. He is as guilty as hell

I'm saying this again and I'm putting my head on the block with this...."This guy knws exactly what happened to his wife, he plotted the hit very carefully, in foreign country nogal, to make it look like just another crime statistic".....I hjust hope the police nail his ass to the wall for giving our country a bad name....

Whether he did it or not, her family has lost a daughter and his family a daughter-in -law. With the number of South Africans who are touched by violent crime every day i'd have thought that all of you who have written a negetive comment would take time to reflect on that. I don't care if he did it or not, I care that my son is growing up outside his country of birth because "you can't drive here, can't go there, might die if you stop at traffic lights" etc. For God's sake people get a grip of the big picture, SA is a F$%king dangerous place to live, sooner or later the statistics are going to catch up with you.

@Terry, this is not an English learning blog. We are commenting King George! So what if the spelling and grammar are incorrect - you get the gist of what they are trying to say. Not everyone has English as their first language dumba@#s.

I wonder why he isn't back in SA yet. He realises that the driver and the killers have now spoken about the arrangement he had with them. I doubt he will come back to SA to point them out in the line-up because he will probably end up in the same line-up. SAPS are keeping quiet because they want to lure him out of England...

“Anni was the 'One'. Her looks, her laughter her personality, her spirit - everything about her was right for me. Why would I want to kill her? HE NEVER ONCE SAID I LOVED HER! THIS IS VERY FISHY. I RECENTLY WENT TO BRAZIL WITH MY HUSBAND OF 6 YEARS AND I SUGGESTED GOING TO SEE THE PLACES WHERE THE MOVIE CITY OF GOD WAS SHOT. MY HUBBIE SAID NO WAY, COZ THOSE PLACES ARE DANGEROUS AS WE'VE HEARD IN THE MEDIA. WHY TAKE YOUR SPECIAL BRIDE TO A DANGEROUS TOWNSHIP IN ONE OF THE DANGEROUS COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD? WE'LL WAIT AND SEE.

What wonders me is that, how did he land up near harare police station instead of Falsebay college where his wife body was found? Secondly how the hijackers new that the couple is wealthy because they are not South Africans nor celebrities who are known all over the world? 3rdly it doesn't make any sense that the killers can hijack the lady and kill her without getting anything in return.
