The Hunt For Thabo Bester | Watch As Police Storm Hideout In Dramatic Raid

The Johannesburg hideout mansion where Thabo Bester had been staying before his second escape has been raided by the South African Police Service (SAPS) and forensics team.

Thabo Bester, a convicted rapist and murderer who escaped from jail in 2022, is currently being pursued by the police, along with his girlfriend, celebrity doctor Nandipha Magudumana.

In 2012, Thabo Bester was sentenced to life imprisonment for the calculated murder of his girlfriend and for sexually assaulting two women.

Bester had posed as an international modeling agent to gain their trust and then attacked them.

Despite serving a decade in jail, Bester managed to escape from the Mangaung Correctional Centre (MCC), a privately owned maximum security prison run by the multinational corporation G4S.

He then went on to live a life of luxury with his partner, Dr. Nandipha, until they were exposed by GroundUp last month.

Following their dramatic escape from their R12 million mansion in Hyde Park, the police forcibly entered the imposing structure to conduct a thorough search for any clues that could help them locate Thabo Bester and Dr. Nandipha.

According to eNCA, who reported from the scene this afternoon, the police had obtained a search warrant for the Hyde Park property, which is owned by real estate agency 4Tune Property Smiths.

The forensic officers, dressed in white hazmat suits and protective gear, entered the mansion to conduct their investigation.

Police officers arrived at 2 pm and were accompanied by the property developer who owns the Hyde Park home.

Thabo Bester and Dr. Nandipha hastily left their hideout on March 27th, leaving behind clothing and jewelry scattered throughout the house after realizing their cover had been blown.

The following day, the Sunday Times reported that two removal trucks were seen collecting the remaining furniture and belongings left behind by the couple.

The scene resembled a movie, as the trucks were accompanied by armed guards wearing bulletproof vests, driving Mercedes-Benz vehicles with emergency lighting.

The guards, who appeared to be physically imposing, prevented anyone from the property developer from taking pictures and reportedly resorted to physical violence to enforce this.
