A prisoner who escaped from Whawha Prison was nabbed a day later at a prophet’s shrine where he was seeking deliverance.

Kelvin Nyoni escaped from two prison officials on 8 March while fetching firewood with other prisoners at a forest nearby.

The prophet at the shrine called the police after Nyoni had revealed he was on the run. When Nyoni arrived at the shrine he was in prison clothes which prompted the prophet to ask questions. He confessed that he had escaped from jail and wanted the prophet to help him evade getting re-arrested,” said the source.

The source added:“Nyoni was told to wait in the queue and the prophet secretly called the police. He was shocked when he saw police approaching. He ran but was eventually 
caught,” said the source.

Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services public relations officer Jere Ruzive confirmed the incident. b metro
