South African hitman jailed for 25 years says Dewani plotted his wife's murder

A hitman has made fresh claims that honeymooner Anni Dewani's murder was ordered by her husband. Mziwamadoda Qwabe, left, said the killing in his native South Africa was designed to appear like 'a random criminal act'. He claimed he was told that businessman Shrien Dewani, pictured with Anni, 'wanted the wife killed' and that it had to look like a robbery. 28 year old Anni Dewani (pictured above with her husband) was shot and killed after the taxi she and her husband were travelling in was hijacked on the outskirts of Cape Town on November 13, 2010 while on their honeymoon. Her British husband Shrien Dewani is accused of masterminding the killing in a murder set up to look like a botched carjacking. He allegedly hired three men to kill Anni. He says he's not guilty.
South Africa is still awaiting his extradition. Qwabe is the second of three South African suspects to be jailed. In 2010 another man turned state witness and implicated Dewani in plotting to kill his new bride. He was sentenced to 18 years
So why did he marry her , if he didn't want her? Money? Freedom?
