London, Nov 27 (ANI): Brit-Indian business tycoon Shrien Dewani, whose wife was killed during their honeymoon trip in Cape Town, has said that the city is the "last place in the world" he would like to visit again.
The Telegraph quoted Max Clifford, the public relations specialist representing Dewani, as saying that his client had not been asked to return to South Africa but indicated that he would do if asked.
"The last place in the world he wants to go to is Cape Town for reasons which I think any reasonable person would understand," he said.
"He has made it very clear that he wants to help in any way he can to get the murderers who were responsible for this terrible murder. If him going back there helps to bring them to justice that's what he would have to do, of course he never wants to see the place again," Clifford added.
Dismissing reports that police in Cape Town are treating Dewani as a suspect, Clifford said that these are "foul rumours and murky claims," and added that his client is being victimised by such rumours in order to safeguard the South African tourism industry, whose reputation has been hit after the incident.
Taxi driver Zola Tongo, 25-year-old suspect Mziwamadoda Qwabe, and another 23-year-old man Xolile Mngeni were been detained earlier in connection with Anni's murder.
William da Grass, the lawyer acting for Tongo, and Thabo Nogemane, the lawyer representing Qwabe, had said this week that they had been told their clients would appear in an identity parade this weekend.
"I have been advised that it will happen on Saturday. Dewani should be there because he should be the witness. He should point out who's hijacked the vehicle," Nogemane said.
Grass added: "If one assumes Dewani is the only witness, then we would anticipate he would be returning."
The couple had reportedly arrived in the country earlier this month and spent four days on safari in the Kruger National Park. Later they moved to Cape Town and after spending a day lounging by their hotel pool, they decided to head out.
At Cape Town's five-star Cape Grace Hotel where the couple had een staying, Dewani said: "We spent an a hour-and-a-half driving round the city. At around 9pm, we headed to Somerset West (a uburb 30 miles away)," when they were attacked. (ANI)
