Johannesburg - Honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani was expected to appeal his extradition on Tuesday, according to reports.

The Star newspaper said Dewani's appeal had been set down for Tuesday and Wednesday.

According to the UK-based The Guardian, 31-year-old Dewani was not expected to attend the hearing in the High Court in London.

Dewani stands accused of masterminding the killing of his bride, Anni, in Khayelitsha in Cape Town last November.

The couple's taxi driver, Xola Tongo, made a plea bargain with the state, admitting that he helped Dewani set up the murder, allegedly meant to look like a hijacking.

Tongo is serving 18 years in jail. The two alleged hitmen were still awaiting trial.

The UK signed an extradition order for Dewani in September.
