Zola Tongo, the driver of the taxi, said he was paid R1500 for his role in the murder. He was sentenced to 18 years in jail after he turned State witness and implicated Shrien Dewani in plotting to kill his wife.
Dewani, who returned to Britain with his wife's body days after the killing, was later arrested after walking into a police station in Bristol in southwest England. He was released on bail pending an extradition hearing. He has denied any involvement in his wife's death. - Sapa
