Cape Town, Nov 26 (ANI): Brit-Indian business tycoon Shrien Dewani, whose wife was killed during their honeymoon trip in Cape Town, would reportedly reach South Africa this weekend to identify the culprits, according to lawyers for two men accused of the crime.

Dewani was the only witness to the attack that took place on November 13 in which he was reportedly thrown from the car and his wife, Anni, was shot dead.

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.

The Telegraph quoted William da Grass, the lawyer acting for Tongo, and Thabo Nogemane, the lawyer representing Qwabe, as saying 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."

However Max Clifford, the publicist hired by Dewani, has claimed that nobody has contacted the millionaire or any of his family members so far.

"No one has contacted him, no one has contacted us - he is at home. He is not well. He is obviously in a bad way after all this. His doctor is keeping a careful eye on him," he added.

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 been staying, Dewani said: "We spent an a hour-and-a-half driving around the city. At around 9pm, we headed to Somerset West (a suburb 30 miles away)," when they were attacked. (ANI)
