Madam Deputy Speaker, with the heartbroken Hindocha family, the father of murdered Anni Dewani, Mr Vinod Hindocha, at a luncheon with Members of Parliament and me, expressed his family's gratitude and appreciation for the outpouring of compassion by South Africans, and to our investigative, prosecutorial and judicial agencies for their professionalism.
The Hindocha family felt that Mngeni's conviction was good news. The last of the three South Africans, Xolile Mngeni, who pulled the trigger which killed the beautiful Anni, was found guilty of Anni's murder on Monday. Hopefully, suspect Shrien Dewani, too, will have his day in our courts, and this will subsequently bring closure to the traumatised Hindocha family and all of us here in South Africa.
The guilty verdict handed down to Xolile was a milestone for the country's judicial system, and the judgment reaffirms that crime is not to be tolerated in South Africa. [Applause.] May many other South Africans whose dear ones have been killed, and who are looking forward to closure, also find that closure which is today to the benefit of the Hindocha family and all peace-loving people. Labo abagangayo bazoboshwa. [Those who are doing wrong will be arrested.]
