Dewani Anni – Sindhi Bride Kidnap & Murder in South Africa

Bride Anni Dewani modern Sindhi girl , 28 – mechanical engineer of Ugandan-Asian descent from Sweden, also a part time model.Last November, they got married at the Lake Pavani resort outside Mumbai. Flying to South Africa for their Honeymoon, which turned out to be a horror.

They were en-route back to their five-star Cape Grace hotel in Cape Town, when they took their doomed detour through the Guguletu Township.They are thought to have stopped at Mzoli’s restaurant in Guguletu, which is a popular spot for tourists.

As soon as they left the venue, about 11 in the night, the car was hijacked by two gunmen, and the driver kicked out.  11 miles away, the killers they stopped the vehicle and forced the husband to leave. That left Anni alone in the car with them. Upon reaching a township, the bride was butchered.Meanwhile, the husband flagged a passing motorist seeking for help.

A police patrol then spotted the Sharan abandoned two miles away in the township of Khayelitsha near Cape Town. The blood-soaked body of Mrs. Dewani was found on the back seat. She was covered in bruises and is feared to have been stabbed, and not probably raped.

SOUTH Africa is suffering a crime epidemic. A source said:

“Under the right circumstances, and in daylight, townships needn’t be too dangerous, & weekend nights are notoriously volatile. Many local people get paid on Fridays and so Saturdays everyone drinks away their wages. Some would say it was suicide for a young foreign couple to go to Guguletu on a Saturday night.

Look at these figures.

Last year there were 14,915 car-jackings ie : 41 a day,

and 18,148 murders ie more than 41 a day !

Most were in townships.

There were 50,000 rapes.

And there were 200,000 cases of assault and

more than 18,000 house break-ins.

These developments come in the wake of the Weekend Argus report yesterday that investigators believed the murder was a planned hit and an “explosive revelation” was imminent.

Anni Dewani’s father, Vinod Hindocha, said: “There are no words to describe her. She was a dream woman, the most beautiful woman you can imagine.”
