Dr Nandipha Magudumana collapsed in the police holding cells at Parkroad Police Station in Bloemfontein before appearing in court this Wednesday morning.

Nandipha’s lawyer said she was forcefully transported from Bizzah Makhathe Correctional Service in Kroonstad to Bloemfontein despite informing the officials that she is ill.

“Her lawyer Machini Motloung has gone to her at the holding cells to check [on her] and apparently an ambulance has been called,” SABC broadcaster said.

Meanwhile, Thabo Bester and the other accused have appeared in court.

It remains unclear whether Magudumana will appear as scheduled as proceedings were delayed by another hour due to the latest development.

EzoicMagudumana, along with her father and 10 co-accused, faces charges related to the escape of Thabo Bester, a convicted rapist and murderer, from a Mangaung prison last year. Nine of her co-accused have been granted bail by various courts, while Bester and one other accused abandoned their bail applications.

Last month, the same court denied Magudumana’s bail application, with Magistrate Estelle de Lange stating that no bail conditions could ensure her appearance at trial, and she had failed to demonstrate that her release on bail would serve the interests of justice.
