Moments ago, judgement in a crucial aspect of the Anni Dewani murder case was delivered. Xolile Mngeni, 25, has been found guilty of shooting Anni Dewani dead just over two years ago.
It had earlier been reported that Western Cape High Court Judge Robert Henney had read in part of his ruling that Xolile Mngeni’s palm print had been found at the scene.
Said the judge:
Although initially vehemently denied as the fingerprint of the accused, this fact was later conceded. It can therefore be safely accepted that this was the left palm print of the accused.
A total of 26 witnesses were called by the State to strengthen its case.
The defence disputed the evidence of six witnesses.
One of the witnesses was the middleman who helped set up the murder.
His identity was being protected in terms of a court order.
“Although he gave no direct incriminating evidence against the accused… His testimony is important in completing the overall factual matrix of this case,” Henney said.
