Guilty by association? Nandipha’s celeb ‘pal’ Zozi Tunzi gets flack

Former Miss Universe and Miss South Africa Zozi Tunzi have been tried by the court of Twitter opinion, and it has everything to do with her friendship with disgraced doctor Nandipha Magudumana.

The beauty queen is a client of the aesthetics doctor, and their pics together can be found on the latter’s Instagram account.

Nandipha is accused of being the co-conspirator behind alleged boyfriend Thabo Bester’s 2022 prison escape. She has been formally charged with aiding and abetting a criminal, defeating the ends of justice – and murder too!
