MEC Fritz: Update on Hijacking and Murder

16 November 2010

Since my announcement yesterday that police have arrested a suspect in connection with the hijacking and murder of Anni Dewani, I am pleased that they have now charged the suspect.

The twenty-six (26) year old male who was arrested in Khayelitsha in the early hours of yesterday morning has been charged with both hijacking and murder, and will appear in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court tomorrow.

Police officers have worked around the clock to make this happen and I trust that the rest of the investigation will be conducted with the same sense of diligence, urgency and dedication as we have seen over the past seventy-two (72) hours.

At the end of the day, I want to see that we secure a conviction.
