One of the two men in custody for their alleged involvement in the murder of British tourist Anni Dewani has had surgery to remove a brain tumour.
The Wynberg Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town today officially heard of Xolile Mngeni’s medical condition.
His co-accused, Mziwadoda Qwabe, has been remanded into custody until the 2nd of August.
It is hoped that more information about Mngeni’s progress will be available then.
Meanwhile, extradition proceedings continue against Bristol businessman Shrien Dewani.
He stands accused of orchestrating his wife’s murder while the two were on honeymoon.
Dewani is currently in England and will appear in a London court on the 18th of July.
