Shock at Dewani ‘killer holiday’ T-shirts

Pretoria News

T-SHIRTS with a slogan referring to the murder of newlywed Anni Dewani in Gugulethu in 2010 have revived controversy about the incident.

The T-shirts, the brainchild of Durban businessman Dinesh Dowlath, carry the message: “Dewani Tours – Treat your wife to a killer holiday.”

The T-shirts reportedly angered Anni’s family as well as Gugulethu residents. Anni’s husband, Shrien, is facing extradition to stand trial in SA after being implicated in the murder.

Mzwandile Zwane, who runs Liziwe’s Guest House in Gugulethu, said it was “shocking” for anyone to make light of Anni’s murder. The T-shirts could “open old wounds”, he said.

Dowlath said there was a market for the T-shirts, as people “see the humour in them”. – Staff Reporter
