Thabo Bester has reportedly received a brand-new South African identity document (ID) card from the Department of Home Affairs.
This is a move in order to identify him with his real identity since he has changed his name severally.
According to Groundup.org.za, The bail hearing for five of the eight accused in the Thabo Bester matter continued in the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court on Friday. Legal representatives for the accused continued cross-examining the state’s witness, Lieutenant-Colonel Teboho Flyman.
The defence took the opportunity to challenge the charges brought against the accused and to dispute some of Flyman’s arguments for why the accused should not be granted bail. Flyman had previously testified that the community was angry and could take action against the accused, and that the accused could pose a danger to the state’s witnesses.

Suspended G4S staff member Motenyani Masukela is alleged to have been at the prison gate when the decoy body was brought to the prison. His lawyer Masilo Koenane challenged whether there was sufficient evidence to charge Masukela with being involved in claiming the body that ended up in Bester’s cell. Flyman responded that it was up to the prosecution to charge the accused, not the police. Flyman said he had provided evidence, after which the prosecution charged Masukela with fraud.
Sunday World reveals that Thabo Bester received a South African identity document (ID) card from the Department of Home Affairs to end the controversy surrounding his many aliases.
The publication adds that a home affairs official visited the Kgosi Mampuru correctional centre last week, to hand over the South African ID to born at the hospital health in 1986.
