Dr. Nandipha and her Husband Divorced in 2022

Dr. Nandipha and her husband ended their 9-year marital relationship in 2022. Her husband, Dr. Mkhuseli, was the one who filed the divorce after discovering that something serious was going on between his now ex-wife and convicted Thabo Bester.

Nandipha apparently reconnected with Bester after she wedded Mkhuseli. No one knows how long they worked together before she eventually got busted for helping Thabo escape from prison.

The medical doctor allegedly visited her boyfriend in prison several times and also hung out with him secretly in hotels in collaboration with several prison officials while Bester was still in prison.

Nandipha and her criminal boyfriend met sometime in 2006 while the latter was still studying at the University of Witwatersrand. Magudumana is believed to have worked for him on modeling projects and subsequently became intimately involved with him.
