The family of the man jailed for his part in the murder of honeymooner Anni Dewani in <place w:st="on"><city w:st="on">Cape Town, last month, on Sunday said they were convinced her husband was behind the crime.
The main state witness in the case taxi driver Zola Tongo has accused Shrien Dewani of being involved in the Gugulethu shooting but Dewani, who is out on bail in <country-region w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Britain</country-region>, has denied hiring a hit-man to murder his wife.
Speaking to Sky News, Tongo's aunt Primrose said she believes large sums of money may have tempted her nephew to commit murder.
"He was greedy and under temptation. He never even hurt a fly before and that was the kind of person he was," said Primrose.
Meanwhile, Dewani has denied he was involved in another carjacking murder in <country-region w:st="on"><place w:st="on">South Africa</country-region> three years ago. The Hawks are investigating a link between Dewani and the 2007 murder of Dr Pox Raghavjee.
In 2007, Raghavjee was shot and killed during a suspected hijacking and police have reportedly reopened the case to investigate a possible Dewani link.
Raghavjee's widow is believed to be a friend of the Dewanis.
