Thabo Bester: Red notice

Zolile Sekeleni shuffled into the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court on Tuesday. Old and weathered, he looked a little bewildered by all the media attention. Just days before, Sekeleni would have passed for the concerned parent of a daughter accused of being an accomplice in one of the country’s most daring prison escapes. Now, he and a former prison warden face serious charges relating to the escape, including murder. It’s a story that began more than a year ago. At its centre, a convicted murderer and serial rapist and the lover accused of assisting his audacious escape from prison, Sekeleni’s daughter, Nandipha Magudumana. Now, Sekeleni’s fate appears intricately tied to that of his daughter, a once successful doctor turned alleged accomplice to Thabo Bester, the now-infamous Facebook Rapist. Their dash for freedom has lifted the lid on a violent, almost unbelievable tale of murder and arson which ended this week in their arrest in Tanzania. Carte Blanche goes behind the headlines of a story that’s shocked a nation.
