Dewani trial: Gunshot residue can't determine who shot Anni
Forensic analyst Thandiwe Mlabateki says primer residue analysis can't determine who fired the fatal shot.
CAPE TOWN - A forensic analyst was on Friday called to explain why gunshot residue was found on a glove belonging to a man who denies shooting Anni Hindocha Dewani.
Anni was killed in an alleged staged hijacking.

Colonel Thandiwe Mlabateki says primer residue analysis can't determine who fired the fatal shot.
With 19 years' experience in chemistry and 13 in primer residue analysis, Mlabateki was called to testify on the subject in the Western Cape High Court on Friday.
This after a glove worn by hit man Mziwamadoda Qwabe tested positive for gunshot residue, even though the late Xolile Mngeni was convicted of pulling the trigger.
Mlabateki says residue particles could land on anything within a two-metre radius.

He denies he had any part to play in Anni's murder.
