Cape Town - A man on trial for Anni Dewani's murder showed policemen where he believed she was hijacked and killed, the Western Cape High Court heard on Wednesday.

A video in court showed Xolile Mngeni, 25, "pointing out" two scenes in Gugulethu and four scenes in Khayelitsha to Captain Clive Joseph Ontong on November 17 2010.

Mngeni has pleaded not guilty to hijacking, robbing and killing Dewani in Gugulethu on November 13 2010. She was on honeymoon with her husband Shrien at the time.

Mngeni first took officers to the corner of Johnson Qona and Klipfontein streets in Gugulethu.

"We hijacked the vehicle at this point," he said, while leaning against one of the cars.

"We entered into the hijacked vehicle towards this direction [points north-west]."

Where Shrien Dewani was dropped

A short while later, Mngeni was seen on the NY1 road, in Gugulethu, at the back of the police detective's offices.

"The driver of the vehicle got out here," he said.

The video cut to Oscar Mpeta street in Khayelitsha, where Mngeni was seen leaning against a vehicle with his head resting on the roof.

Ontong explained in court that it had been a hot day and that was why Mngeni was resting against the car.

A short while later, Mngeni told police "the husband" was dropped at this spot.
He then bent down and spent a while rolling up his jeans.

The convoy moved to Mew Way road, in Khayelitsha, and Mngeni explained "the woman" was shot there.

"I'm not sure of the place where she was shot, but it was in this road. It was where we started arguments," he said.

"The guy shot the lady and got into the vehicle. I also got into the vehicle because the distance was too far. And then we left."

On Look-out hill

The video cut to Sinqolathi street, where Mngeni said he and "Mawewe" dumped the hijacked vehicle.
He told officers that Mawewe showed him in which bush he would hide the cellphones.

He said they split up and ran to a nearby hill, called Look-Out hill.

In the last scene, Mngeni was seen pointing out a road in front of a civic centre in the area.

He said he and Mawewe met there shortly after running away. They split "the money" and then parted ways.

Ontong told the court Mngeni had not been told where to go.

He had shown the police where to drive and where to stop.

The trial continues.
