Dr Nandipha Cooperates With Investigators And Throws Thabo Bester Under The Bus
According to a police source, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, the disgraced celebrity doctor who is serving a 32-year sentence for human trafficking and rape, has decided to cooperate with the investigators. Dr Nandipha reportedly wants to “throw Thabo Bester under the bus for everything.” Bester is Magudumana’s boyfriend, who is also facing rape and human trafficking charges.
Two domestic employees missing and presumed dead
Magudumana has said she would explain what happened to their two missing domestic employees who were reportedly last seen at their hideout rental home in Hyde Park, Johannesburg, last month. Earlier this month, police were looking for the couple’s helper and gardener who allegedly vanished and are believed to have been buried in the yard of the upmarket mansion.
The police who visited Magudumana at Bizzah Makhate Female Prison in Kroonstad said that they would be taking Magudumana and Bester to the Hyde Park house they fled from to explain exactly where they allegedly buried the bodies.
Family of Katlego Bereng Mpholo suing state
The bodies of the domestic employees are not the only ones Magudumana and Bester have to answer for. The police confirmed the identity of the charred body found in Bester’s cell, which was initially believed to be his after he staged his death to escape from the Mangaung Correctional Centre in Bloemfontein on 3 May last year. After DNA tests were conducted, police said that the body is that of 31-year-old Katlego Bereng Mpholo.
An autopsy report revealed that Katlego had died due to blunt force trauma to the head and was already dead before the prison caught fire. According to an interview with eNCA, Katlego’s family said that they are suing the state. Batho Mpholo, who is Katlego’s father, said they still have not been allowed access to his remains. “We have been receiving calls from high-level legal teams who are willing to help us,” said Katlego’s father.
