CAPE TOWN - British businessman Shrien Dewani shed tears in the dock as he viewed CCTV footage of he and his wife at their hotel just hours before she was murdered.

He's spending their fourth wedding anniversary on trial for her murder in the Western Cape today.

Dewani is accused of hiring hitmen to kill his wife during the couple's honeymoon in Cape Town in November 2010.

Anni Hindocha Dewani was shot and killed in an alleged staged hijacking. Her body was found in an abandoned Volkswagen Sharan.

Zola Tongo, a convicted criminal turned state witness, has been testifying about his role in the apparent murder plot which involved recruiting hitmen to stage the hijacking in Gugulethu.

Prosecutors are using CCTV footage to corroborate Tongo's testimony who acted as the Dewani's taxi driver while on honeymoon.

Tongo said Dewani asked him to recruit hitmen to kill a woman but it only dawned on him that the target was Dewani's wife after she had been murdered.

The taxi driver picked the couple up at the Cape Grace Hotel on 13 November 2010, hours before the murder.

CCTV footage showing the couple affectionately holding each other outside the hotel was shown in court.

Seated in the dock, Dewani wiped away tears.

He took a sip of water as he tried to compose himself.

The couple married in India on this date four years ago.
