A legal analyst says it is highly likely that Shrien Dewani will be extradited to South Africa to stand trial in the murder of his wife, Anni. The statement comes after Dewani returned to his family home in Bristol in the United Kingdom where he has to report to the local Bristol police station under terms of his strict bail conditions.
Taxi driver Zola Tongo has accused Mr Dewani of offering him R15 000 for his wife's murder. Tongo’s mother, Primrose, blames the 30-year-old newly-wed for her son's problems.
Meanwhile, independent legal analyst Advocate Kevin Malunga says the United Kingdom has already indicated that it is eager to see a just conclusion to the Dewani case.
In other developments, the so-called middle man who allegedly recruited two hit-men from Khayelitsha to kill Mrs Dewani, has reportedly been granted indemnity from prosecution.
Well-placed sources within the National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) say Monde Mbolombo will not be spending time in prison if he testifies truthfully in the Dewani murder trial.
Mr Mbolombo, a receptionist at a Cape Town hotel, is a key state witness in the case. He has reportedly given police a full witness statement that implicates Mr Tongo as well as Mr Dewani.
Tongo was sentenced to 18-years in prison in return for making an affidavit implicating Mr Dewani in the hit on his wife. Mr Dewani is fighting his extradition to South Africa.
