Dewani accused befuddled by SIM card

2012-10-24 15:45

Cape Town - It was a mystery how a SIM card found its way into the phone of one of the killers of tourist Anni Dewani, the Western Cape High Court heard on Wednesday.

The State asked Xolile Mngeni, 25, whether he inserted a SIM card into a Nokia E90 phone at 20:47 on November 14 2010 and he replied that he had not.

When asked who was responsible, he said he did not know and that the cellphone number did not belong to him.

The State said airtime had been loaded onto this number and calls were made to and received by Mziwamadoda Qwabe, an alleged accomplice already behind bars.

"That also beats me but that's not my number," Mngeni replied.

He has pleaded not guilty to hijacking, robbing and killing Dewani in Gugulethu on November 13 2010.

She and her husband Shrien were being shuttled around by driver Zola Tongo at the time. He was later jailed for being an accomplice in the murder.

Tongo was robbed of his Nokia E90 phone that night.

Mngeni previously testified that, the day after the murder, Qwabe gave him the Nokia and a Blackberry so he could find buyers for them.

The court heard that six outgoing calls and seven incoming calls were recorded on the sim card while it was in the Nokia.

The trial continues.

    Typical attitude even in the face of overwhelming evidence - deny, deny, die naai. Learnt from his leadership.

      He thinks we are stupid, or maybe he really just does not understand the technology involved here.

    If he denies it, it didn't happen. Easy as that. Everybody except he is lying. Of course, his attorney also did not understand him when they conalted on so many occasions. He is being framed. Bwaaaaa, cruel world.

    I can't believe the tax payers money was wasted in removing the tumor from this kluts' brain. They should have left it there and let natural justice take it's course.
