UK businessman Shrien Dewani has been discharged on a count of murdering his wife Anni while on honeymoon in South Africa.

Deputy Judge President Jeanette Traverso granted an application for a discharge in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

"I make the following order... the application is granted. The accused is found not guilty on this charge."

She said the only reason not to grant the application would be out of hope that the accused would implicate himself if he took the witness stand.

To do so would be a "manifest misdirection", said Traverso.
