One of the men arrested for honeymooner Anni Dewani’s murder in Cape Town last month was facing several other serious charges and was out on bail at the time of the killing, National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele said today.

Eyewitness News reported that Cele said that Xolile Mngeni, who appeared alongside two co-accused in the Wynberg
Regional Court today, was facing “a slew of charges against him from previous cases”.

“He was on bail for... murder, attempted murder, owning illegal firearms and other stuff,” the radio station quoted the police chief as saying.
