Dewani trial: Qwabe to resume testimony

Qwabe is the state's second witness to testify in Shrien Dewani’s murder trial.

Mziwamdoda Qwabe leaves the Wynberg Magistrates Court in 2011, following his arrest for the murder of Anni Dewani

CAPE TOWN - Mziwamadoda Qwabe, one of the men jailed for his role in Anni Dewani's murder, will return to the witness stand this morning, when Shrien Dewani's murder trial resumes in the Western Cape High Court.

Qwabe is the state's second witness.

Dewani, a British businessman, is accused of ordering a hit on his wife during their honeymoon in Cape Town in 2010.

He has been extradited to South Africa to stand trial for the alleged orchestration of her murder.

Anni was shot dead in an apparent staged hijacking in Khayelitsha.

Dewani's lawyer Francois van Zyl is expected to continue grilling Qwabe about discrepancies between his plea agreement and various affidavits supplied to the court.

On Thursday last week, the trial was adjourned early because Qwabe had stomach cramps after a gruelling few hours on the stand; he couldn't remember details about the night of the hijacking in which the young bride was killed.

Week one of the trial was dominated by news of Dewani's bisexuality and that he logged onto gay hook-up site Gaydar while on honeymoon.

He also went on the site just two days after his wife was killed.
