Serial rapist and murderer, Thabo Bester was thrust into the spotlight late last year as it emerged that the notorious criminal had allegedly died in a horrific fire in prison. But this story took a bizarre turn when, just weeks later, Bester was photographed – alive and well - at a grocery store in Johannesburg. It took a team of investigative journalists to finally uncover how the murderer had strolled out of prison in a brazen escape. A manhunt for him and his lover, Nandipha Magudumana ended with the two being hauled back to South Africa from Tanzania. Now, as Bester awaits trial for numerous crimes related to the escape, Carte Blanche examines how he went from being a charming schoolboy to a ruthless killer.
