CAPE TOWN - The father of slain British tourist Anni Dewani is not expected to return to the Western Cape High court on Monday when the sixth of 30 witnesses will take the stand.

Xolile Mngeni is accused of shooting 28-year-old Anni while she was on honeymoon in Cape Town with her husband Shrien Dewani in 2010.

Deani has been accused of orchestrating his wife's murder.

Vinod Hindocha is not expected to return to the Western Cape High Court tomorrow.

During a recent exclusive interview with Eyewitness News , Hindocha confirmed he will to travel to the UK later this month to attend Shrien Dewani's extradition hearing.

Over the past week he heard the testimony of Mziwmamidoda Qwabe who recounted details of Anni Dewani's murder.

At times a visibly shaken and upset Hindocha could not look at Qwabe as he outlined discussions with his alleged accomplices.

He told the court he ignored a bleeding Anni in a minibus taxi while he scoured the crime scene for an incriminating bullet casing.

Qwabe has been sentenced to 25 years behind bars for his role in the crime.
