Shrien Dewani impotent - ex

2011-08-08 11:02
Cape Town - British honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani was impotent, his former fiancée has reportedly told South African police.

Dewani, 31, who is accused of murdering his bride Anni in Cape Town in November 2010, allegedly broke off his engagement with Rani Kansagra after telling her about his sexual problems, the Daily Mail and other British tabloids reported on Monday.

This comes as police also investigate claims that he is gay after an escort, The German Master, told police in the UK that he recognised Dewani as a client when he saw him on the TV news.

The escort allegedly told Scotland Yard that Dewani paid him a total of more than £1 100 for three sexual encounters between September 2009 and April 2010.

Dewani has denied the allegations and says he has never met the male prostitute from Munich.

Kansagra, 26, who met Dewani at a party in August 2008, told South African police that he called off their engagement.

Anni 'appeared happy'

Dewani then went on to marry Anni in a lavish traditional ceremony in India in November 2010, shortly before he allegedly arranged her death in a planned hijacking.

Kansagra, who lives with her parents in Northwood, Middlesex, has repeatedly refused to comment about her relationship with Dewani.

Meanwhile, the UK’s Daily Star reported that just six months before her death, Anni Dewani appeared very happy when Dewani took her to Paris to get engaged.

But her family revealed to the newspaper that after the excitement of the romantic trip, the pair later split.

And, despite patching things up and then tying the knot, Anni told relatives she was thinking about divorce.
