Later in August of 2012, Mziwamadoda Qwabe was pleaded guilty to the murder of Anni was he was sentenced to 25 years in the jail.
The same year on 19th November, a man named Xolile Mngeni who was aged 23 was convicted to Anni’s murder and he was also sentenced till life to the prison. Later, it was confirmed on July of 2014 that a Medical Parole Application had been made for Xolile, who was terminally ill with the brain tumour.

It was stated by Zola Tango that Dewani’s husband who is a British National Shrein Dewani offered R15000 for killing his own wife. Following the application by the South African authorities, senior district judge Howard Ruddle ruled in august of 2011 that Shrien could be extradited for facing charges in the relation to murder.
On 28th September 2011, the extradition order was approved by the home secretary Theresa May. A high court ruling of 30th March 2012 put extradition on the hold, based on the expert witness opinion of Dewani’s mental Health and the prospects for the recovery. Shrien continued to claim his innocence within the kidnap and the murder lot while Shrien’s family described allegations of Tongo as ‘totally ludicrous’. After a very long legal battle, the English high court of justice rejected the plea of Shrien in January of the year 2014 against the extradition to South Africa.
