Motsoaledi: “we are revoking Dr Nandipha Magudumana’s passport”

Home Affairs Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi during a media press release, said the department has obtained advice that there are strong legal grounds to revoke Dr Nandipha Magudumana’s passport.

“We are revoking it because she no longer deserves to have it. The passport is valid and legitimate and was due to expire in 2027,” Motsoaledi said.

Magudumana, who is standing trial for allegedly aiding Bester to escape from prison in Mangaung, is challenging her arrest and deportation from Tanzania last month while on the run with him.

Motsoaledi said the home affairs director-general was surprised to see the minister and department were not cited as respondents by Magudumana.

Her matter will be heard at the high court in Bloemfontein on Thursday.
