Much Ado About A Ruling.....

I was rather dismayed to learn that the judge presiding over the Shrien Dewani case had cleared him in having a hand in his wife's murder. This case has been on for four years and I have been following it because it was a rather peculiar case. Shrien had been fingered as the mastermind behind his wife's (Anni's) murder during their honeymoon in South Africa. As a matter of fact, three men - Tongo, Mziwamadoda Qwabe and gunman Xolile Mngeni - have been convicted for their roles in carrying out the murder of Anni. These men claimed that Shrien hired them to stage a kidnap/robbery as a cover for the murder. 
Anni's family in tears after the verdict. :(
I feel awful for her family that it's all come down to this after all these years, and I cannot imagine their anguish at this verdict. The judge feels there were too many loopholes from the witnesses' evidence and it wasn't enough to convict Shrien. I wish Shrien had been made to take the stand and tell his part, maybe things would have been more clearer as per what transpired that fateful night. 
Shrien Dewani -_-

While I cannot imagine how his life would be within his community, moving forward, it still doesn't take away the hurt the victim's family.

Rest in peace Anni Dewani.
