Further woman alibi witnesses emerged during the cross-examination of one of Anni Dewani's alleged killers, in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday.

The State had been asking Xolile Mngeni about his movements the weekend she was killed, between November 12 and November 14, 2010.

He revealed he was with his girlfriend, another girlfriend and "a woman on special".

On that Friday evening, he left his Khayelitsha home and met a woman.

"I spoke with this child, agreed about everything and brought her home to my home. Yes, it's a girlfriend," he testified.

He then left her in his shack to play street ball with his friends and returned later to sleep.

Prosecutor Shareen Riley asked what her name was.

"I don't know what her name is but it was just a special for that night," he said.

He then remembered her name and told it to the court.

He said he would be able to show police where she stayed, if they wanted her to testify.

He could also get his grandmother and another family member to confirm he was at home the whole time.

On the Saturday evening Dewani was killed, he said, he was with his official girlfriend and another couple.

On Sunday morning, he left his girlfriend in the shack and went home. He met a third female friend, "a girlfriend", that day.

The trial continues.
