Thabo Bester turns heads in R19k Burberry hoodie during court appearance – Sparking outrage over lack of orange overalls



Thabo Bester wore a 19k hoodie

Thabo Bester wore a 19k hoodie during his highly publicised appearance at the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s court for his prison break case. According to Briefly SA News, the infamous Facebook sexual offender and murderer, along with his co-accused, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, has been discussed across Mzansi. However, Bester’s attire took the spotlight on his court date.

While Dr Nandipha’s father, Zolile Sekeleni, and five other accused stood in the dock, Bester made a virtual appearance on a TV screen, as reported by TimesLIVE. Dr Nandipha also appeared virtually from the Kroonstad Correctional Centre, as reported by The Citizen.

Thabo Bester’s court appearance in his 19k Burberry hoodie caused quite a stir among South Africans. Many expected to see him in his signature Nike tracksuits. Still, the former fugitive surprised everyone with his high-end designer choice. A video shared on Twitter by user @pmcafrica captured the moment Bester entered the scene, drawing attention to his expensive attire.

Bester’s expensive court clothing has sparked controversy, with many people questioning how a convict like him can access such luxury brands. Twitter user @thato_stalion asked, “Why’s he dressed like that, isn’t he a convict?” Another user wondered why Bester wasn’t wearing the standard orange overalls typically worn by prison inmates.

The public’s reaction to Bester’s fashion choice continued to pour in. @Feliza201624122 expressed their frustration, stating, “He’s actually giving us the middle finger here, Tbh.” @Monare99 speculated that Bester’s attire was a statement, suggesting, “He seems to be telling the system that he is bigger than the system…” @NkweMashamaite questioned the preference, asking, “What brand do you prefer he should wear? Cheap clothes or the ones he can afford.” @kunene_tumelo firmly asserted, “He should be in orange; he is a convict doing time.”

While the spotlight has been on Bester’s wardrobe, another figure in the case, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, has made headlines for her surprising transformation behind bars. Previously, Briefly News reported on the disgraced celebrity doctor’s prison glow-up, as she appeared with freshly done nails, hair, and makeup, in stark contrast to her earlier court appearances where she concealed her face with masks. Dr Nandipha’s improved appearance has raised eyebrows, prompting many to question how a prison inmate can access beauty services while serving time.

As the court proceedings continue, the public remains captivated by the unfolding drama surrounding Thabo Bester, Dr Nandipha Magudumana, and their co-accused. The case has not only shed light on the flaws in the correctional system. Still, it has also ignited debates about the privileges afforded to inmates. As South Africans await further developments, the question of justice and equality lingers in many, with the hope that the court will reach a fair resolution for all parties involved.
