A teacher by profession, Bezuidenhout entered politics in South West Africa in 1959 as the founding vice president of the South West Africa Coloured Organisation. In 1985, Bezuidenhout became the minister of transport of the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGNU), a puppet government of South Africa prior to Namibia's independence. The TGNU chairmanship operated under a quarterly rotational system, and Bezuidenhout was named the first chairman of the TGNU as transport minister. In 1987 he chaired the TNGU again for 3 months. Then a member of the Namibia's Labour Party, Bezuidenhout eventually became a founding member of the United Democratic Front from 1989 to 1995.
Bezuidenhout retired from politics in 1995 and died on 7 August 1998 in Windhoek.
