Who Is Thabo Bester and What Did He Do? – The Full Story

Thabo Bester is a notorious South African rapist and murderer who is also known as the Facebook rapist due to recruiting his victims from Facebook.

Bester was serving a life imprisonment sentence at the Manguang Correctional Facility when he sensationally broke out with the help of his partner-in-crime, Dr Nandipha Magudumana.

The notorious couple were rearrested after over a year on the run following an explosive expose by GroundUp which confirmed Bester’s escape.

In this article, Nigeriabombshell.com looks at the full story surrounding Thabo Bester – Who is Thabo Bester and What did he do?

Who is Thabo Bester the Facebook rapist?

Thabo Bester biography

The Facebook Rapist is a South African serial rapist also known as Thabo Bester. He was caught and arrested in Alberton, south of Johannesburg in the Gauteng province of South Africa following a countrywide search in the wake of his crimes.

According to the Mail & Guardian, in 2011 Thabo Bester was 22 years old.

That means Thabo Bester is 34 years of age in 2023.

It is not known where Thabo Bester is originally from, but he grew up on a farm in Gauteng. Thabo Bester’s race is also not clear, although there are speculations he could be mixed race. Others claim he’s of Indian descent but there is no evidence of that.

According to some reports, Thabo’s mother Maria Mabaso revealed that the man who fathered Thabo had defiled her. She gave no further details of his possible race or ethnicity.

According to the Mail & Guardian article, Thabo Bester told the Durban Magistrate’s Court that he was raised by his alcoholic grandmother and grandfather on a farm in Gauteng.

He said he was raped by his grandmother’s friend, and that when he told his grandmother about the abuse, it was like talking to a wall.

“My grandmother’s friend hurt me when he raped me, and I had an operation on my behind”, Thabo Bester was quoted.

His situation became worse when his grandmother died, and he had to live with his friends in a squatter camp.

While living there he was approached by a man who promised to look after him, but who had then locked him in his house for days and raped him.

In 2009 Thabo Bester (The Facebook Rapist) WAS found guilty of fraud and sentenced to six months in jail with an option of paying a R1500 fine.

“I did not have money to pay. They treated me badly in prison because they thought I was from a well-off family,” The Facebook Rapist was quoted by Mail & Guardian.

What Did Thabo Bester Do?

Bester was sentenced to 50 years in prison in 2011 for rape and robbery crimes.

HEAVING with emotion and with tears streaming down his face, a visibly drained Thabo Bester, dubbed the Facebook rapist, pleaded for leniency in the Durban Magistrate’s Court yesterday before being sentenced to 50 years’ jail.

Bester (23) related his story of personal hardship that started in Johannesburg, claiming years of abuse and poverty had led to his crimes. But magistrate Sharon Marks was not moved.

Marks gave him 15 years’ imprisonment on each of the two counts of rape. He was sentenced to another 15 years, with five years suspended, for each of the two counts of armed robbery with aggravating circumstances. Bester pleaded guilty to all charges on Wednesday.

Speaking in mitigation of sentence, Bester said he had made the best of a bad situation.

“I did what I had to do in order to survive,” he declared.

Bester had the filled-to-capacity courtroom’s full attention as he described his troubled childhood.

“I was abandoned by my parents and left in the care of my alcoholic grandmother. People she worked for helped put me through school,” he said, adding that he had to drop out in grade five to fend for himself.

Extremely articulate, Bester spoke loudly and clearly, moment­arily breaking into tears.

“The first time I was abused it was by a man my grandmother sent me to who was going to circumcise me. The man didn’t do a proper operation, but only did a partial cutting — instead, he raped me,” he said, heaving and sobbing.

Barely 10 years old, Bester claimed, he was then raped by one of his grandmother’s friends, who apparently kept him behind closed doors for a week and sodomised him to the point that he needed an operation on his rectum.

He also claimed he was molested by various members of his grandmother’s family.

Forced to fend for himself since the age of 12 because his grandmother was ill, Bester claimed, he began sleeping in a squatter camp and started hanging out with a group of runaways and orphans.

“We would hustle for food and get by any way we could,” he said.

But it was later that Bester would be introduced to the more sophisticated world of fraud and corruption.

“I was asked by guys to cash fraudulent cheques and run other errands for which I was paid,” he said.

Bester was eventually caught in 2009 and charged with fraud, receiving a two-year suspended sentence.

“During my detention, I was gang-raped by a group of inmates and they also shoved a bottle of Sunlight and water up my anus, meant to release any valuables they thought I may have been hiding in my body cavity.”

The court was presented with the relevant case number, confirming that he had opened a case of indecent assault against inmates.

Bester said he understood that he had done a terrible thing by committing the rapes and robberies, but he needed to make peace with himself and he wanted a psychologist to make sense of the person he had become, before he is sent to die in prison.

“I’m sorry,” he swallowed his words, “I’m sorry, that’s all I can say.”

Bester’s lawyer, Narendra Narotam, described Bester as a victim of circumstances and that the “world was to blame”.

“We all have to take responsibility for what has happened,” he said.

Marks meanwhile described Bester as — in spite of his “sad life” — someone who was at all times aware of what he was doing.

“You have scarred these girls for life, and they will never be the same again,” she said.

‘You lured two beautiful and naive girls to your lair where you carried out these well-planned and premeditated heinous acts,” she said.

Marks said she did not see any genuine remorse shown by Bester for his victims, but only for himself.

Bester is also suspected of having committed a string of other crimes in Cape Town, Durban and Gauteng, including the murder of a woman in Milnerton last month.

The serial rapist challenged police via social networking sites such as Facebook to catch him if they could.

On two known occasions he lured unwitting young women to hotels with the promise of glitzy modelling jobs, but instead, raped and robbed them at knife-point.

Bester apparently posted adverts on reputable websites such as FHM that were looking for models.

He later received a life sentence.

“Facebook rapist” Thabo Bester was jailed for life for the murder of Johannesburg model and car saleswoman Nomfundo Tyhulu.

He appeared in the Western Cape High Court before acting Judge Judith Cloete and assessor, advocate Juliana Thayson, who sentenced him to an additional 25 years on a charge of aggravated armed robbery.

The armed robbery charge related to possessions that he took from Tyhulu after killing her. Bester, 23, stabbed Tyhulu, 23, in the chest, in a bed-and-breakfast in Cape Town in September last year. The two were on holiday together.

They met at the BMW dealership in Sandton, Johannesburg, where she had sold him a car. They started a long-term relationship before going to Cape Town on holiday.

After stabbing Tyhulu, Bester flew to Durban. On his departure from the bed-and-breakfast in the morning, he told reception staff that Tyhulu was still sleeping and not to be disturbed before 14:00.

These remarks were an aggravating factor, the judge said.

Prosecutor Samantha Raphels told the court on Tuesday that Bester’s acts were premeditated and that the robbery and murder charges should be treated as serious, separate crimes.

He should face life in prison as he was clearly not sorry for what he had done and had not been “open and honest” with the court, she said.

Bester was previously sentenced to 50 years in prison for raping and robbing two models. He was jailed for 15 years on each count of rape and 15 years on each count of robbery. Five years of each robbery sentence was suspended.

He is called the “Facebook rapist” as he used the social networking site to lure women to meet him, claiming that international modelling scouts were interested in them. Armed with a knife, he then raped and robbed them.

Thabo Bester Spotted in Sandton

Photographs of a man who closely resembles Facebook rapist Thabo Bester shopping in Woolworths in Sandton City have surfaced online nearly two months after his reported death in prison.

The photograph shows him with long hair, wearing a tracksuit and sunglasses.

Thabo Bester latest news - new photos

The photographs, taken on 30 June 2022, add to the mystery surrounding Bester’s reported death. On 3 May 2022, the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) announced Bester had died in a prison fire in Mangaung. But several elements suggest that he may have escaped from prison and that the body found after the fire may be that of another man.

In the pictures sent to GroundUp, the man is accompanied by a child who looks like the photos of the daughter of celebrity doctor Nandipha Magudumana on Magudumana’s Instagram page. A woman in a cream-coloured outfit stands with her back to the camera.

The metadata of the photos confirms that they were taken in Sandton City. GroundUp has spoken to two people who knew Bester who said they are convinced he is the man in the photos.

The person who leaked the photos to us, who also took them, told GroundUp that she had recognised Magudumana in the shop. She did not recognise Bester but was surprised to see Magudumana with a man who was not her husband. She took a picture to show a friend who is a fan of Magudumana.

GroundUp sent the pictures to the Judicial Inspectorate for Correctional Services (JICS) for comment. Their spokesperson Emerantia Cupido told GroundUp, that it was “the first time JICS has seen these photos”.

Asked whether the pictures might confirm that Bester had escaped from prison, Cupido said, “The Inspecting Judge, Justice Edwin Cameron is deeply concerned by the evidence he has received thus far, however, JICS cannot confirm this, as we are still busy with the JICS investigation.”

Cupido added that they, “unfortunately [do not] have the equipment or forensic accreditation to confirm the authenticity of these photos or the identity of the person in these photos”.

On Wednesday we reported that days after Bester’s death was announced in May 2022, Magudumana had collected the body from the morgue but it was later confiscated by police for further investigations. A woman claiming to be Bester’s mother also tried to claim the body, but her DNA did not match that of the body.

Magudumana then approached the high court in Pretoria asking that the body be released to her, claiming in an affidavit to be Bester’s “customary law” wife. The court has not yet ruled on the matter.

There are several strange circumstances surrounding the fire

  • Bester was moved into the cell soon before the fire;
  • the man who died did not die from the fire but from a blow to the head;
  • minutes before the prison fire, two people were seen leaving the prison;
  • CCTV cameras were apparently not correctly positioned;
  • the height of the body recorded during the autopsy was 25cm shorter than Bester’s height displayed on a police mugshot;
  • the DNA of the body did not match that of the woman who claims to be Bester’s mother; and
  • to our knowledge, the body has not yet been positively identified as Bester (if it has, neither the police nor DCS have told us).

However, there may be valid explanations for these things

  • the photos leaked to GroundUp could be fake (very unlikely), or it could be someone else in the pictures;
  • the woman claiming to be Bester’s mother may not be his biological mother, explaining the DNA discrepancy;
  • the coroner could have made a mistake when measuring the height of the body during the autopsy; or
  • the people who left the prison just before the fire may be unconnected to Bester.

Whether or not Bester is alive, this matter has raised troubling questions about G4S-managed Mangaung Correctional Centre, DCS, and the police.

Ten months after the fire, there are still no answers from the police or the Department of Correctional Services.

GroundUp received no reply to questions sent to SAPS, DCS or Magudumana.

Thabo Bester Latest News – DCS Confirms Escape from Prison

DCS confirms Thabo Bester escape

The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) has confirmed that Thabo Bester escaped from prison weeks after being spotted in Sandton with Nandi Magugudumana.

In a statement released on Saturday, March 25th 2023, the DCS confirmed that the body found in Cell 35 at Mangaung Correctional Centre following a fire on 3 May 2022, was not that of Bester.

The DCS said its internal report confirmed that Bester escaped prison.

“No stone will be left unturned in getting to the bottom of Thabo Bester’s escape and there will be serious consequences for any party involved,” said DCS spokesperson, Singabakho Nxumalo.

He said that last year, they received a report from Mangaung Correctional Centre, a public-private partnership (PPP) facility contracted to Bloemfontein Correctional Contracts, operated by G4S, indicating that offender Thabo Bester committed suicide by setting himself alight in his cell in the early hours of the morning.

“On 3 May 2022, the Department of Correctional Servies received a report from Manaung Correctional Centre, a public-private partnership facility contracted to Blomfoentein Correctional Contracts, operated by G4S, indicating that offender Thabo Bester committed suicide by setting himself alight in his cell…” the statement said.

“This incident attracted media attention and it was confirmed to various media houses as received from G4S. Recorded as an unnatural death, the Standard Operating Procedures dictated that an investigation be launched and the incident be reported to police.

“In line with the concession contract, two officials from the DCS were appointed by the Controller (an official of DCS) to conduct an investigation into the incident.”

“DCS is now in a position to bring forth findings of its investigation on Thabo Bester, an offender sentenced to life and 75 years imprisonment, running concurrently. It has to be stated that this statement only provides an account from DCS, as SAPS is still seized with the matter and conducting its own investigation,” Nxumalo said.

He said a post mortem conducted on the body that burnt beyond recognition in Cell 35 at Mangaung Correctional Centre, revealed that it was an adult male with blunt force trauma to his head.

“The post mortem report further revealed that there were no signs of smoke inhalation in the body. Furthermore, it uncovered that the pancreas and the spleen in the body were in the early stages of decomposition. Over and above that, the DNA sequencing with a person identified to be the mother of Bester failed to indicate a common ancestor, or a match,” Nxumalo said.

He said that based on the information, a plausible conclusion will mean that the said body referred to above is not that of Thabo Bester.

“This is the basis upon which the DCS investigation report concluded that Bester escaped from lawful custody on May 3, 2022. Critical at this stage is for Thabo Bester to be found. DCS is appealing to the public to assist with any information that may lead to the re-arrest of Bester. Such information should be provided to the nearest police station or a correctional services facility,” the DCS said.

Nxumalo explained that the department has signed an agreement with the contractor, Bloemfontein Correctional Contracts to design, construct, operate and maintain a correctional centre for 2 928 bed spaces, just outside Bloemfontein for a contract period of 25 years.

“This contract commenced with operations on July 1, 2001, ending on June 30, 2026. DCS has no intention of extending the contract beyond the expiry date.

“DCS has a duty of monitoring the daily operations at the facility to ensure that the contractor complies with the Conditions of the Concession Contract and Schedules,” Nxumalo said.

Dr Nandi Magudumana and Bester

dr nandipha magudumana

Dr Nandipha Magudumana is the celebrity wife of convicted Facebook rapist Thabo Bester.

She is 32 years old, originally from Port Edward in KZN. She holds a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree (BHSc) in Biomedical Sciences, and a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB), both from Wits University.

Magudumana runs a cosmetics surgery company called Optimum Medical Aesthetic Solutions. She has 124,000 Instagram followers and was named one of the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans in 2018.

As to why she started Optimum Medical Solutions, Magudumana says it was mainly to get capital to help her study further and also to help other black women to enter the medical services market.

‘I saw there was a need for African people, especially black women, to enter the medical services market. There aren’t many African black women in this industry, I thought it was important that we start entering this market and educate our people about it, ‘ she told Business Report in a recent interview.

After her ‘husband’ Thabo Bester the Facebook rapist was supposedly killed in a fire in prison in 2022, Nandipha Magudumana, claimed the body from the mortuary shortly after the fire. But after the autopsy, the police confiscated the body for further investigations. A woman who said she is Bester’s biological mother then tried to claim the body, but her DNA did not match the body’s.

She took the body to a mortuary in Soweto, but it was confiscated by police upon instruction from the investigating officer in Mangaung. Further investigations were then conducted on the body.

Magudumana approached the Pretoria High Court on 19 May, requesting that the body be returned to her. She also asked the court for a declaratory order entitling her to bury Bester. The court has not yet made a final ruling on the matter.

In her founding affidavit, Magudumana argued that as Bester’s customary law wife, she had the burial rights, and indicated that she wanted an independent autopsy to be conducted to determine the cause of death. She also claimed the police had threatened and intimidated her.

She gave a full account of her relationship with Bester and lobola negotiations which resulted in them becoming married under customary law.

But Magudumana’s affidavit did not mention that she had been in a civil marriage with another man since 2013, and is still registered as such on Home Affairs’ database. Under customary law, marriages are not allowed if one party is already married under civil law.

Magudumana said in her affidavit that her father and assistant had been detained by police when trying to collect the body from the mortuary in Soweto. “It pains me to see my late husband’s body being moved around like a pauper,” she said.

She also claimed that she had met Bester in 2006 while studying at Wits University. They had a good relationship until they lost contact in 2011. She reached out to Bester in 2017 to “rekindle our relationship” and started visiting him in prison.

“Whenever he had any concerns and/or problems and any issues in prison, I was the only person who would communicate with lawyers to try and resolve those issues,” she said. She also said that she would regularly pay money into his prison account and that Bester proposed to her in February 2020.

Magudumana claimed that Bester’s mother died while he was young and that he was raised by his grandmother. “I do not know any relatives of the deceased that are still alive,” she said.

Death and escape

The man who was dubbed the Facebook rapist because of how he used the social media platform to lure his victims, has died.

The department of correctional services in May 2022 confirmed that Thabo Bester was found dead in his single cell at the Mangaung Correctional Centre in Bloemfontein around 03.35am.

“His cell had been on fire and he was found to have sustained some burn wounds,” said DCS spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo.

Nxumalo said an investigation was under way to determine whether the fire was started intentionally.

Neither suicide nor foul play was ruled out.

However, details of his so-called death never added up.

GroundUp uncovered new evidence that reveals suspicious circumstances in the prison fire thought to have killed “Facebook rapist” Thabo Bester.

On 3 May 2022, the Department of Correctional Services announced that Bester was found dead in his cell at the Mangaung Correctional Centre, a maximum security private prison operated by multinational security company G4S. A fire had broken out and a body was found under a burnt mattress.

GroundUp has learnt that in the early hours of the morning of the fire, people were seen on CCTV cameras hastily exiting the prison.

GroundUp also revealed that the person whose body was found in the cell was dead before the fire broke out. According to the post-mortem report, which we have seen, the person was killed by a blunt force injury to the head.

The body’s height at the time of the autopsy was 1.45m. But in a police mugshot, Bester stood taller, at just over 1.7m. (While this is suspicious, a forensic pathologist told GroundUp that it is possible for a pathologist to underestimate the height of a burnt body.)

The post-mortem report also noted a “strong smell of accelerant (paraffin)” from the body’s trachea and bronchi. The whole body was charred, and the hands and face were particularly badly burned. After the autopsy, the police docket relating to the matter was changed from suicide to murder.

In March 2022, GroundUp published photos taken in June 2022 appearing to show Bester and Dr Nandi Magudama shopping in Sandton.

Phumudzo Thenga and Tom Motsepe

Sensational reports have emerged that even whilst in prison, Thabo Bester ran a ‘business empire’ under the name Tom Motsepe with the unwitting cooperation of businesswoman Phumudzo Thenga.

Ground Up, the publication running the most elaborate investigations in the whole Bester affair, reported that Bester was running a multi-million rand scam business while serving a life sentence for rape and murder at Mangaung Correctional Centre.

He reportedly posed as a as the chairman of a company known as 21st century media, a scam event and production company which he marketed as a subsidiary of American giants 21st Century Fox.

21st Century Media was the subject of a social media storm in 2018 after promoting a “Women in Media” conference with Hollywood A-listers as guest speakers, which turned out to be a scam. 

The company promised it would bring Hollywood A-listers Halle Berry and Taraji P. Henson to South Africa and managed to draw several high profile South African celebrities to its launch.

Pictures and video footage of the glitzy launch of 21st Century Media in 2018, held at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, show the event was attended by members of Johannesburg’s high society, including celebrities Amanda Du Pont and Yvonne Chaka Chaka.

Attendees were told that the chairman of the company, “Tom Motsepe”, would video call in from New York. But unbeknown to the audience, the man appearing on the big screen was actually convicted rapist and murderer Thabo Bester, speaking from prison.

Bester appeared in front of a white wall wearing a suit and designer watch. Video shared online after the event contains a clip of the audience singing happy birthday to “Tom”. The date of the conference was 13th June 2018 – Bester’s exact birthday.

At the time of the event, Bester was serving a life sentence at Mangaung Correctional Center, a private maximum security prison operated by multinational company G4S.

Phumudzo Thenga Denies Knowing Motsepe was Thabo Bester

The businessperson who ran Thabo Bester’s multimillion-rand media company, which claimed they would bring international stars Halle Berry and Taraji P Henson to South Africa five years ago, has distanced herself from the convicted rapist and murderer.  

Speaking out for the first time since a media report by GroundUp associated her with Bester, Phumudzo Thenga says she was also a victim of Bester’s scams, as he persuaded her to open the media business 21st Century Media for Bester while he was in still prison, although she did not know that at the time.  

In a statement released on Saturday, Thenga distanced herself from Bester, saying: “I have had nothing to do with him since the deregistration of 21st Century in 2018 upon discovering the true facts around who he really is. I am in fact a victim of his scams,”

Thenga stated that Bester introduced himself to her as Tom Motsepe, the nephew of billionaire businessperson Patrice Motsepe, through Instagram in 2017. She says Bester showed an interest in the community work she was doing and claimed to be based in the UK and the US. 

She said he made various proposals, including that she register 21st Century Media in her name as a sole director. She said Bester claimed he was affiliated to and was a shareholder of several high-profile international companies. 

“He organised meetings with high-level legit businesspeople with ease — removing all suspicion of anything untoward. In summary, ‘Tom Motsepe’s’ modus operandi was to pretend to be a shareholder of international brands such as 21st Century Fox and Sky Digital,” she said.

Thenga added that Bester also proposed that they do community work by rolling out a programme to distribute antiretroviral drugs to disadvantaged communities through his girlfriend, celebrity aesthetics doctor Nandipha Magudumana, who is better known as Dr Nandi, and her practice, Optimum Medical Aesthetics.  

Phumudzo Thenga claims that alarm bells started ringing in 2018 when she was approached by lawyers representing internationally acclaimed mass media and entertainment conglomerate 21st Century Fox, leading to a settlement being agreed to through lawyers and all intellectual property that was in the registration process being withdrawn.

She says she was hoodwinked by Bester, adding that she found out about his true identity after some employees told her about him.

She states that she confronted Bester, who tearfully confirmed that he had been in prison all along and conducted all their correspondence from behind bars.  

“I am a victim in all of this. I was scammed and decided to painfully walk away, now my life will be at risk after this,” she concluded.

Tom Motsepe Biography

Thabo Bester has used aliases throughout his criminal career. While running 21st Century Media, he was known as “Tom Motsepe” and claimed to be related to businessman Patrice Motsepe.

GroundUp spoke to several former employees of 21st Century Media. They said that “Tom” was hands-on in the company’s operations and would send money whenever it was needed. Everyone was acting under direct instructions from “Tom”.

According to former employees, he was able to persuade people to quit their jobs at established media houses to join the company. He had researched the industry well and senior members of the media knew about him, one former employee told GroundUp.

Recruits of 21st Century Media were led to believe they would be working with an industry-leading company. “Tom” introduced himself to them as an executive of 21st Century Fox and Sky Digital.

A Twitter account for “Tom Motsepe” contains photos of Bester’s face edited onto other people’s bodies. In one picture, his face is edited onto American actor Michael B. Jordan’s body.

An archived copy of tommotsepe.com shows Bester wearing the same outfit he wore on the night of the company launch. The website contains several blog posts on business management.

Bester had invented an extensive backstory for “Tom”. A Board of Directors document for another of his companies, 21st Century Group, includes a profile that describes “Tom” as a “South African investment strategist magnate”, a “progressive and innovative businessman”, and a “thought leader” with “sound knowledge of how to operate a successful global brand”.

21st Century Media (Pty) Ltd was registered as a company with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission in 2018. The sole director was Phumudzo Thenga. Thenga was also the sole director of 11 other registered companies with names similar to well-known international companies. All of them, including 21st Century Media, have since been deregistered.

Companies registered by Thenga include “UBS Group” (the same name as a giant financial services firm), “United Talent Agency” (the same name as one of the biggest international casting agencies) and “Black Phoenix Digital” (the same name as a UK-based PR company).

Thenga was also the sole director of “TM Financials”, which one former employee told us stood for “Tom Motsepe Financials” and shared offices with 21st Century Media.

Another was “Sky Digital”, the logo of which was displayed on a banner at the 21st Century Media launch event and bore a striking resemblance to the logo of the UK-based television network Sky News. The logos for 21st Century Media and 21st Century Group displayed on the banner were also very similar to those of their real counterpart.

Following Bester’s escape, the Department of Correctional Services announced it had cancelled its contract with G4S to run Mangaung Prison.

The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Ronald Ramola said this in his reply in Parliament to EFF MP Yoliswa Yako.

G4S was a member of a consortium that agreed to manage Mangaung Prison for 25 years under a contract with the DCS.

The contract between the government and the multinational private security company was expected to run until June 30, 2026.

In his reply, Lamola also said the department would also not be renewing its contract with the South African Custodial Services, that managed the Kutama Sinthumile Correctional Centre in Makhado, Limpopo

That contract will end on February 15, 2027.

“The department has commenced with the process or taking them over once the contracts come to an end,’’ he said.
