Cape Town – Dr Nandipha Magudumana’s father has reportedly been arrested, together with three other people.
Magudumana’s father was arrested on Saturday after his daughter’s arrest in Tanzania on Friday, Times Live reported.
However, according to eNCA, it remained unclear, what charges they are facing or when they will appear in court.
Two weeks ago, Magudumana’s father said he was worried about his daughter and that she was in hiding, reported eNCA.
Earlier, EWN revealed that police took Magudumana’s father in for questioning to get more information in their investigation into the prison break of her partner, Bester.
The report said that police were “hoping that Magudumana’s father, as well as an employee, can shed light that will progress their investigation into the escape and allegations that have emerged in recent weeks”.
Meanwhile, a South African delegation comprising of legal experts, law enforcement, justice from South Africa is on its way to Tanzania to secure the return of Thabo Bester and Dr Nandipha Magudumana.

Thabo Bester posed as an American citizen
Cape Town – Fugitives Thabo Bester and accomplice Dr Nandipha Magudumana who were arrested in Tanzania on Friday night were reportedly in possession of several passports with different names.
Police Minister Bheki Cele confirmed the news during a media briefing on Saturday where he and Justice and Correctional Services Minister, Ronald Lamola detailed the circumstances of the arrest.
Cele said the duo were arrested along with a Mozambican national in the Tanzanian city of Arusha with “multiple passports in their possession”.
“It was also discovered there that they have several passports with different names
“They’re are having several passports each and not a single one has been stamped,” said Cele.
He said because their passports were not stamped, they couldn’t confirm when they had arrived in Tanzania but it looked like the fugitives were headed to the next country as they were apprehended “10km away” from Kenya.
It was initially believed that he died in a fire in his cell, but DNA tests later confirmed that the body was not that of Bester.
Bester used Facebook to lure models before kidnapping and raping them.
