Dr Nandipha remanded in custody after appearing in court for murder and other charges

Nandipha Magudumana, the partner of convicted Facebook rapist, Thabo Bester, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, has been remanded in custody after making her first court appearance.

She appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Thursday afternoon on charges of aiding and abetting an escape from prison, murder, violation of bodies, and fraud.

Tebogo James Dipholo, a worker employed by a business that installs CCTV cameras at the Mangaung Correctional Centre, where Bester fled, was present during Magudumana's court appearance.

Magudumana may have already been arrested for perjury in 2022, according to inspecting judge Edwin Cameron. Cameron said that this was sufficient justification for her arrest for perjury.

The matter was postponed for bail information and a possible bail application. She will appear in court on Monday again.
