Mmereka Patience Martha Ntshani – also known as Dr Pashy – has formally distanced herself from former friend and industry colleague Nandipha Maguduman. This after the latter shockingly stole her identity after skipping the country with fugitive boyfriend Thabo Bester.

The heart surgeon, who once went into business with Nandipha, issued a statement on her Instagram account.

Magadumana and Thabo were arrested in Tanzania on Friday, 7 April. The duo were allegedly using fake passports – one of them under the full name of Dr Pashy.

They are expected to be deported imminently.

Nandipha and Pashy are believed to be friends, after the latter was invited to speak at Magudumana’s medical conference in 2020. The event – titled Doctors Network Presents – was also attended by former Top Billing presenter Michael Mol and the late Sindi van Zyl.

That same year, the Dr Pashy Foundation hosted a women’s seminar, inviting Dr Nandipha to participate as a guest speaker.

DR PASHY CLAPS BACK

Following the arrests and allegations of a stolen identity, Dr Pashy posted a statement on her social media account. In it, she distanced herself from her industry colleague.

Pashy also claimed that while her organisation had acquired the services of Nandipha’s PR agency Vibes Africa Incorporation International, she was not aware of any fraudulent business practises by Magudumana.

“Neither the organisation nor Dr Ntshani [Pashy] in her personal capacity has received funding from Dr Nandipha Magudumana, or indirectly from organisations affiliated with her.”

The statement added that Pashy would be pursuing legal action against Nandipha.

Amid Thabo Bester and Nandipha’s arrests, Dr Pashy posted several cryptic posts on her Instagram account.

One read: “Keep calm…. God will fight your battles”. Another stated: “True success affords you a peaceful sleep.”
