Thabo Bester’s alleged lover Nandipha Magudumana is facing a slew of criminal charges, but her prison “glow up” is the talk of the Twitter streets.

In recent days, the woman linked to convicted criminal Thabo Bester made an appearance at the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court with a full face beat, neatly-styled braids, and even a set of fresh acrylic nails!

But is it special treatment for the celebrity aesthetics doctor? Or is she well within her rights?

CORRECTIONAL SERVICES SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT

It was no surprise that the skin specialist has naturally beautiful skin and nails. But clearly, Nandipha Magudumana had some help in the beauty department, particularly whilst in police custody.

Nandipha is currently remanded in custody at the Kroonstad female prison. She and Bester will both make their next court appearance on 20 June.

Speaking to Thando Thabethe on 947, Correctional Services Singabakho Nxumalo said: “In our facilities, both male and female, we have salons where they are taught different skills.

“In those salons, they are taught hairdressing, nails and other things. They can take advantage of that facility, it is allowed”

Nxumalo said convicts and those awaiting trial have to pay for the service, which is done using a special cash-less system.

On the issue of Nandipha and Thabo Bester’s clothing – which included the latter’s R18 000 Burberry hoodie, Nxumalo claimed that everything was above board.
