One of the men accused of killing honeymooner Anni Dewani has been sentenced to 25 years in jail after pleading guilty to her murder.
Mziwamadoda Qwabe admitted kidnapping, robbery, murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm during a pre-trial review at the Western Cape Court.
It is believed he reached a plea bargain agreement with the state prosecution.
A second man, Xolile Mngeni, who is suffering from a malignant brain tumour, is due in court this afternoon.
Mrs Dewani, from Sweden, was shot and killed after the taxi she and her husband were travelling in was hijacked in Gugulethu on the outskirts of Cape Town on November 13, 2010.
Her husband Shrien Dewani from Bristol, who is fighting extradition to South Africa, is accused of arranging his wife’s murder.
South African police say Dewani hired three local men to kill Anni, 28.
The couple’s driver, Zola Tongo, who was jailed for 18 years after turning state witness and pleading guilty, claims Dewani had ordered the carjacking and paid him to arrange it.
Dewani’s lawyers claim he needs up to a year to recover from stress and depression before he will be fit to be extradited.
