Dewani arrives in Cape Town

British businessman and honeymoon murder-accused Shrien Dewani arrived in Cape Town on Tuesday morning.

"Shrien Dewani has landed at Cape Town International Airport and was received by members of the SA Police Service," the justice department said in a statement.

"He arrived in the company of a medical doctor, nurse and members of SAPS and Interpol."

Dewani will today be formally charged following the November 2010 murder of his wife, Anni Hindocha, while they were on honeymoon in Cape Town.

Taxi driver Zola Tongo, who turned state witness, said Dewani had offered him R15 000 to find hitmen to kill his wife. Tongo recruited two men for the hit.

Dewani has maintained his innocence and has been entangled in a protracted extradition war.
