Mock-up posters of a Netflix documentary recounting the life, escape and recapture of “Facebook rapist” and murderer have gone viral, with some of our favs suggested to star in the project.
Bester was convicted of murder and two counts of rape after luring women via Facebook. He was serving a life sentence when he escaped from the Mangaung maximum-security prison last year by setting his cell alight. A dead body was found in the room and officials announced Bester’s death at the time.
He was later reportedly spotted living in the lap of luxury, including renting a R12m mansion, partying it up and going on shopping trips. After weeks on the run, Bester and his lover Dr Nandipha Magudumana were arrested in Tanzania earlier this month.
The escape has gripped Mzansi, with new details emerging each week.
It has left many calling for it to be made into a documentary, with some of the best actors and actresses in the country playing leading roles.

The streets thought Mothusi Magano would be the perfect actor to play Bester, with Sindi Dlathu or Nomzamo Mbatha as Dr Nandi. Warren Masemola and Sello Maake ka Ncube were also on the wishlist
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Mothusi said he was honoured that people had thought of him.
“A couple of fans have sent me the poster. I am flattered that people are thinking of me.”
Warren said fans had linked with other projects they had wanted him on before, and had no comment.
While some said making it into a Netflix show would be a bad idea and Bester should not be celebrated, others offered their suggestions on who they would want to play in it.

Thabo Bester is not content for our amusement and or entertainment. He is a serial rapist and murderer that belongs in jail. His actions affected/broke many families and I’m sure they don’t want to watch his story on TV. The Netflix documentary nostalgia is a bit disturbing.
