Anni Dewani – 12 months on

A poignant reminder

The remnants of a bouquet of roses marks the spot where Anni Dewani’s body was found, a heartbreaking reminder of those oh so tragic events of 12 months ago today, in Gugulethu, Cape Town.

During the intervening year the taxi driver has been sentenced to 18 years in jail, a further two accomplices (the trigger men) are awaiting trial and the alleged mastermind (Anni’s husband Shrien Dewani) is appealing against a successful extradition order which the S.A. prosecution service hope will see him returned to Cape Town.

The extradition appeal is scheduled to begin on December 13th.

Today is Remembrance Sunday, Anni will be in my thoughts today as I reflect and remember those who fell serving their countries over the past 100 years.

  1. Thanks for the update Soutie.

    My apologies to any who think we have removed the poppy banner prematurely. Here in Oz, Remembrance Day is the 11th of the 11th – whatever day of the week it falls on.
