Thabo Bester claims items worth R30m stolen from him

Thabo Bester told the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday that items to the tune of around R30 million went missing when he and his lover, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, were arrested in Tanzania in April. Bester and 11 co-accused were in the dock in connection with his escape from the Mangaung prison last year. News24 reports that his cell was set alight and officials believed that the body found inside it after the blaze was extinguished was his.
