The two suspects arrested for the escape of convicted rapist and murderer; Thabo Bester have been charged with aiding his escape.
They include the father of Dr Nandipha Magudumana, who has also been charged with murder. It relates to the burnt body that was used as a decoy in Bester’s cell.
The 65-year-old, Cornelius Sekeleni, and former G4S employee Senohe Matsoara appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court this morning.
Bester escaped from the Mangaung maximum security prison, in May last year, after staging his death in a fire.
