Suspicious Circumstances Surrounding Dumi Masilela’s Death Raised After Simz Ngema’s Revelation

The death of Dumisani Masilela, the late husband of actress Simphiwe “Simz” Ngema, has come under renewed scrutiny from social media users. This wave of speculation follows Simz Ngema’s recent confession about visiting Thabo Bester in prison.

Background of the Controversy

The conversation was sparked when, on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2023, Simz Ngema publicly admitted that she had visited Thabo Bester, a notorious criminal, at the Mangaung Correctional Centre in 2018. This visit occurred several months after her husband, Dumisani Masilela, tragically died in a failed hijacking attempt in August 2017.

The Timeline: Key Events

Simz Ngema’s statement, which she later deleted, disclosed that she visited Thabo Bester on May 5th, 2018. She explained that the visit was purely for business reasons and insisted it was a one-time event. According to Simz, Bester, using the alias TK Motsepe, had hired her to make several appearances for his company, 21st Century Media. She claimed, “I went to prison to demand answers. It was a difficult time in my life, and he owed me money.”

This revelation has prompted social media users to question the events surrounding Dumi Masilela’s death. Dumi was shot during a botched hijacking in Tembisa on August 3rd, 2017, and despite driving himself to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries.

Thabo Bester’s Fraudulent Activities

Thabo Bester, under the guise of TK Motsepe, launched the multi-million-rand company 21st Century Media in June 2018. He deceitfully presented himself as a wealthy New Yorker related to billionaire businessman Patrice Motsepe, all while he was imprisoned at Mangaung Correctional Centre.

In September 2018, 21st Century Media organized a fraudulent event named “Women in Media,” further entangling unsuspecting individuals in Bester’s web of deceit.

Despite Simz Ngema confronting Bester about his fraudulent activities, it appears she did not report these to the authorities.

Social Media Reactions

The public’s reaction on Twitter has been intense, with many questioning the circumstances surrounding Dumi Masilela’s death. Comments have included:

  • @south_prescott: “This Simphiwe Ngema situation with Thabo Bester makes me wonder what really happened to her husband, who really killed him, and why?”
  • @Krayzie_Animal: “These guys [convicted murderers] should be visited as there MAYBE a story behind the hijacking and killing of Simz’s husband Dumi Masilela… The timelines are suspicious.”
  • @RakakiTrevor_: “Dumi Masilela’s death needs to be re-investigated, and the killers questioned.”

The Conviction of the Murderers

In 2021, five men were convicted of the murder of Dumi Masilela and received life sentences, as reported by City Press. The tragic event saw Dumi shot in the stomach during the hijacking attempt. Despite his efforts to save himself, he ultimately died from his injuries.


The renewed scrutiny of Dumi Masilela’s death, prompted by Simz Ngema’s admission of her visit to Thabo Bester, has stirred significant controversy and concern on social media. As the public continues to question the details, the case remains a poignant reminder of the tragic loss and the complex web of events that followed.
