CAPE TOWN - Anni Dewani's family said on Tuesday they have once again been overwhelmed by support from South Africans.

Anni's father and cousin have been sitting in on the trial of alleged hitman Xolile Mngeni.

Mziwamadoda Qwabe, who has already been sentenced to 25 years for his role in the November 2010 shooting, has been testifying.

Anni Dewani's father Vinod Hindocha turned and faced the wall when Xolile Mngeni and Mziwamadoda Qwabe were brought into the courtroom.

At times he found it difficult for him to hold back tears.

Today is the fourth day Qwabe will be on the stand.

Qwabe has implicated Mngeni as the one who carried the firearm and shot Anni.

During cross examination, defence lawyers tried to prove Mngeni was not privy to all the planning before the shooting.
