Exploring Dr. Nandipha’s Lavish Lifestyle And Assets
Socialite doctor Nandipha Magudumana is currently making headlines after it was reported that she was connected to her boyfriend convicted murderer and rapist Thabo Bester.
Before the revelation of her association with notorious criminal Thabo Bester, Dr. Nandipha Magudumana presented herself as an ordinary person.
However, her lifestyle was anything but average. She seemed to have a perfect life before everything went South.
Here’s a glimpse into Dr. Nandipha’s extravagant way of life before her arrest.
Dr. Magudumana has traveled extensively, from exotic destinations like Bali in Southeast Asia to the United Arab Emirates and beyond.
The South African reports that, unlike most people, she didn’t have to endure long queues or baggage scans when flying.
In one instance, she even captioned,
“Even the pilot knows he can’t move the plane without a picture first.”
To be fair, Dr. Magudumana can be relatable to some extent. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy driving luxury vehicles like Mercedes and Range Rovers?
So how did she live? According to EWN, Dr. Magudumana resided in a luxurious mansion worth a jaw-dropping R12 million in Hyde Park, which she shared with her recently captured fugitive boyfriend and alleged partner in crime.

Dr. Nandipha’s Personal Life
Dr. Magadumana had cultivated connections with several high-profile South African celebrities and media personalities.
Her social media accounts feature photos of her mingling and socializing with the likes of former Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, respected news reporter Redi Thlabi, and the renowned Tsotsi actor Terry Pheto, who has also recently faced controversy in connection with the National Lottery Commission scandal involving Arthur Mafokeng.
Dr. Magadumana’s bold and perhaps even arrogant behavior was on display in 2018 and 2019 when she made appearances on SABC 3’s Afternoon Express to discuss her company, Optimum Medical Aesthetics, located in the heart of Sandton.
However, rumors circulated that she was not registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
As per eNCA, if it’s discovered that she had been practicing medicine after her license was suspended in April 2021, she may face criminal charges.
