Anni's family gather for murder trial in Cape Town.

THE family of honeymoon murder victim Anni Dewani have said they are keeping an open mind as her husband prepares to stand trial in South Africa accused of ordering her death.

Seven members of her family have arrived in Cape Town for the start of the trial on Monday, nearly four years after the 28-year-old model was shot in the neck as she travelled through a township with her husband Shrien Dewani.

Her uncle, Ashok Hindocha, said the family's wait for justice has been "agonising", and that they just want answers so they can mourn properly.

But he would not comment on whether Anni's loved ones would welcome Dewani back into the family should he be found innocent.

Mr Hindocha, 54, said: "We have been let down for four years by the justice system. We have been to every court case, in England and South Africa, thinking: 'How can we come to a closure?' "Now we know we are coming to an end."

Dewani, 34, is due to appear at Western Cape High Court after receiving treatment at Valkenberg Hospital since April. The millionaire businessman was extradited from the UK to face trial charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping, robbery with aggravating circumstances, murder, kidnapping, and defeating the ends of justice.
