Take a look….

Nandipha and Thabo Bester allegedly embarked on an explicit affair while he was behind bars after being convicted of rape and murder in 2012. He was serving a life sentence.

At the time, Nandipha was married to Mkhuseli Magudumana, who is also a medical doctor. The former couple share two daughters together; Ayana and Aziza.

But according to an affidavit, Magadumana claimed she was Bester’s “customary wife.” In a tweet posted last week, former friend Redi Tlhabi claims the couple divorced in 2022. However, conflicting reports claim Nandipha is still legally married to Mkhuseli.

Legally, the celeb doctor could not marry Thabo Bester as he does not possess any official identity document.

According to Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoaledi, Bester’s mother, Maria Mabaso never registered his birth. Bester never applied for an ID document after coming of legal age.

In a media briefing in March, he said, “Thabo never registered with any home affairs at any stage. So, the only place where you could find him, as police have said, was in correctional services when he was an inmate. That’s where you’ll find his fingerprints and photo and the South African Police Service’s crime database”.

According to Redi Tlhabi, Mkhuseli is currently “shielding” his daughters with Nandipha away from the media frenzy. Back in February, Nandipha and Bester skipped the country after she dropped off her children at school.

Mkhuseli  – who wed Nandipha in 2013 – has yet to speak publically of their relationship status.
