CAPE TOWN – Anni Dewani murder accused Xolile Mngeni’s lawyer on Monday said his client will testify he was never friends with Mziwamadoda Qwabe.

Qwabe, who has already been sentenced for his role in the murder of British tourist, earlier identified Mngeni as the person who pulled the trigger.

Anni was gunned down during a hijacking in Cape Town back in November 2010.

Qwabe detailed the events that led to the murder in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

He told the court how he was contacted by driver Zola Tongo and arranged to meet him to discuss the hit.

He said Tongo told him there was a British man who wanted his wife killed.

Qwabe also asked Anni’s family for forgiveness.

The murdered bride's father attended Monday's court proceedings.

Qwabe insist he and Tongo were friends before they met to organise the shooting.

Mngeni’s lawyer said his client will dispute this, adding they were not acquaintances.

Meanwhile, alleged mastermind Shrien Dewani has continued to deny any involvement in his bride’s murder.

The case will resume on Tuesday.
