Fifth suspect held in South Africa honeymoon murderDecember 12th, 2010 - 6:51 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 12 (IANS) The South African police have picked up a fifth suspect for questioning in the murder of an Indian-origin woman while honeymooning in that country, a media report said Sunday.Former hotel worker Monde Mbolombo has been named in the documents as a suspected fixer in the killing of bride Anni Dewani, the Daily Express reported.
Driver Zola Tongo, 31, jailed for 18 years for admitting his part in the plot, claimed that Mbolombo put him in touch with a hit-man.
Mbolombo, who until Nov 30 worked at the Protea Hotel Colosseum in Cape Town, has turned state witness. This move came after British-born millionaire Shrien Dewani, 30, was granted 250,000-pound bail in London.
Dewani, an India-origin man, posed for pictures outside the family home Saturday in Bristol. He denies any part in his wife’s death Nov 13.
Swedish-born Anni, 28, was found shot dead the day after two men ambushed Tongo’s taxi, dumping him and Dewani.
Mzwamadoda Qwabe, 26, and Xolile Mngeni, 23, face trial for murder, robbery and kidnap.
