Another gay sex bombshell for Dewani

2012-04-02 15:42

Cape Town - A second man has come forward to claim he had kinky gay sex sessions with honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani.

Britain's Daily Star reported on Sunday that the man - a respected political aide who mixes in the highest circles at Westminster - said he had sex with Dewani in a private room at gay fetish club The Hoist in London on several occasions.

The 53-year-old political adviser told the newspaper that Dewani's denials that he was secretly gay had prompted him to come forward with his claims. He apparently gave a statement to Scotland Yard.

He claims they first met at the club nine years ago, and that Dewani was a "submissive" who enjoyed S&M and dressing up in leather.

Another man, a German escort named Leopold Leisser who advertises his services as "The Master", told police that Dewani had paid him to have sex on three separate occasions. Leisser could be a prosecution witness should Dewani stand trial.

According to the Daily Star, prosecutors told Dewani's extradition hearing in London in 2011 that they had a witness who claimed Dewani had said he needed to "find a way out of getting married" and that he would be "disowned" by his family if he tried to break off his engagement.

On Friday, Britain's High Court ruled that Dewani's extradition to South Africa to face charges relating to his alleged masterminding of his wife Anni's murder in Cape Town in November 2010 should be halted on mental health grounds, saying it would be "unjust and oppressive" to order the extradition given his current state of mental health.

      Charles cannot spell even when responding to a comment with the correct spelling.

      Who cares about his mental state of mind. Fact you are implicated in a murder you need to come stand trial. If he smashed his toe in the door his defense would use that as an excuse as well. Cmon on man be a man.

    this doesn't help the case.

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-04-02 16:42

      you think?

      E=MC2 - 2012-04-03 13:02

      im kinda sure thats the idea Mashudu...

      pieter.bosch - 2012-04-03 15:06

      Mashudu this al means there is a possible motive for the murder. As a possible gay person he was not happy to be in a marriage with a female where due to family and/or religious customs he would be disowned if he did not marry or divorced. His only possible way out was to get rid of the wife.

    He must swing

    I do not care if this oke is a closet dominatrix. I care about the guilty being in jail, the families finding closure and a soul being allowed to rest. I think press releases like this not only damage the case itself but severely damage the possibility of him ever facing trial in South Africa. I would argue that the amount of press this case is receiving and the growing public interest and anger means that no judge in South Africa can be expected to be completely impartial. Voila! He'll face trial in the UK and if convicted will be in a cushy jail cell. This is one instance where I totally support the secrecy act. The Government could then say ' Listen, we think this is a no-no, we're putting a stop to it in the interest of justice running its course.'

      peet.bothma - 2012-04-03 12:09

      I don't understand - how will the SA secrecy act have an effect on a London newspaper?

      Jacqui - 2012-04-03 13:10

      Geez, are you serious?. Imagine a government getting involved in a murder trial. Where will you draw the line?.

      Antipoaching - 2012-04-03 14:30

      marcanthonytaylor, never, ever, ever, never can Govt be allowed or encouraged to interfere in the Courts! As for the Secrecy Bill, there is no way this case could ever be classifed as "in the Country's security interests" and the bill would have no force nor effect on UK media. You also seem to have missed the fact that the "male escort' has already given a statement to the British police...... so this isn't rumour-mongering. I really don't see that the UK are going to stop a SA trial because the accused had a penchant for S&M gay sex.......

      Marina - 2012-04-03 21:32

      The article was published in the Daily Star, a UK newspaper.

      marcanthonytaylor - 2012-04-04 11:34

      I am talking about SA's press. The oke has been taken to pieces here in the press because every little irrelevant rumor about him is printed with glee and feasted upon. My question is this, given the amount of sensationalism , can a judge be expected to be impartial?

  • neilzim - 2012-04-02 16:55

    I mean he must hang :)

  • Erinah - 2012-04-02 17:07

    so if he is gay its possible that he opted out of the marriage by masterminding the death of Anni. Its sad

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-04-02 19:06

    He would rather have his lovely young wife murdered than face the wrath of his family... Now he faces not just the wrath of his family, but of Anni's family and the world at large. What a fool!

  • pkheswa - 2012-04-02 20:09

    Hope he rots in jail for killing his wife

  • Stanley - 2012-04-02 21:16

    I still don't understand how him enjoying "kinky gay sex" is connected to him wanting to kill his wife. Kill the wife to be with his lover(s)? Makes no sense, he could've just left her.

      Dakey - 2012-04-03 10:27

      He is a spoilt child. Killing his wife would give him an excuse for not remarrying any time soon (claiming extreme grievance). Additionally he would not lose his inheritance, which clearly was more important to him that the life of his wife.

      radlegend - 2012-04-03 10:33

      I fully agree. Him being gay or whatever has nothing to do with anything. This would be such an interesting movie!!!

      Jacqui - 2012-04-03 13:14

      Stanley, his parents and family would not accept him being gay and thus he could kiss his easy life and big inheritance goodbye. Thus he had to get married and get rid of his wife, if he is guilty of course.

      pokum - 2012-04-04 12:07

      let people live their lives, this thing of arranging marriage is not conducive, in this case a beautiful young soul paid the price..there are so may people who die everyday for "honour" of their families everyday. women are treated like pawns in a game of chess in india its just that this is in the public eye

  • radlegend - 2012-04-03 10:32

    Oh my goodness. Really? Wow, maybe I should speak up to ruffle some feathers!! Claim to fame: I had sex with Shrien too!! haha, he'll deny it like he does everything else, but then i'll have my 2 secs of fame!! hahaha

      pokum - 2012-04-04 12:08

      joke in bad taste

  • Marcelle - 2012-04-03 12:29

    Mmmmmmm, Shame, poor thing! "Unjust & Oppressive" .... "given his current state of mental health" PHULEEEEEZE! Bet no-one is questioning what his "current state of health" was at the time of his "happy" honeymoon with his beautiful & innocent wife? He knew EXACTLY what he had planned & set in motion ..... SWING.

  • Nicole - 2012-04-03 15:03

    Truth be told......i think that these men who camw forward are trying to get sensation and publicity out of this whole thing......Dewani is guilty as sin but now all these men are hoping to get rich or famous by claiming they slept with Dewani.

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-04-04 01:50

      what a bunch of rubbish assumotions! Either way!

  • npretorius2 - 2012-04-03 16:01

    People are reading all of this wrong, it has nothing to do with his sexual orientation, its about motive.

  • Arthur - 2012-04-03 17:14

    Well if I was the night club owner I'd scour my surveillance footage and sell it to the first Tv station - that should be enough to prove he had motive to kill his wife.

  • Marina - 2012-04-03 21:28

    It's disgusting that a poor woman had to be sacrificed to "please" his family. I wonder if they did this to hide his sexual preferences? If so, then they deserve this publicity.

  • sudika.harkhu - 2012-04-04 05:08

    For those people who are blaming Dewani's family, please! He had a choice. Come out to his family, if they disinherited him, so be it, he had some degrees, he could have gone out and make it on his own. But he was too bloody greedy. He orchestrated this mess, and now sweet Anni is no more. Just a pawn in his sick game.

  • therainmanlives - 2012-04-04 07:47

    I think we are all thinking this and just don't have the moral fiber to say it. The deceased family should just hire a contract killer and let Dewani catch a cold, swim with the fishes. Whatever politically correct term you can think off. Clean and simple. This guy wont serve time and even if he did it will be in some plush prison. There are enough hungry souls that would kill for less than R10000. Give him his just rewards. This is another epic fail for the Justice system. And has anyone noted the UK's double standards. If we where for instance holding a terrorist suspect in custody and he was let say suffering from a mental condition. They wouldn't waste a second to get him back but since its South Africa and oh wait God forbid its in Africa we can't be sending people there. Where is the humanity. Its so uncivilized there. I grieve with the family and again I am somewhat not surprised at the lack of kahunas of South African diplomacy.

      Aston - 2012-04-04 08:53

      err no, i was not thinking that

  • pokum - 2012-04-04 12:02

    this is why parents should drop this arranged marriage thing, look what the results can be...you make a person so desparately misserable

  • vasse.cayez - 2012-04-09 01:34

    she is dead now so what all that fuss...

  • Patsy - 2012-04-20 13:27

    Excuses, excuses, excuses. Do the crime - do the time...
