Bester gained notoriety for his criminal and con artistry exploits. He and Magudumana ran the fraudulent construction business Arum Properties while he was incarcerated, getting clients to pay millions of rand for unfulfilled construction projects.

In response to this information, a manhunt was started in March 2023.

He had been convicted of multiple crimes before going to prison, including the murder and rape of women he had met on Facebook. He was found guilty in 2012 of killing his lover, a model named Nomfundo Tyhulu, after abusing her. He was convicted guilty of robbing and raping two further women in 2011. He received a life sentence in prison. [1]
