THREE ZIMBAS ESCAPE FROM SA JAIL


Three Zimbabweans are on the run after escaping from remand detention at Kgoi Mampuru II Correctional Centre in the early hours of Saturday in South Africa.

Spokesperson for the Department of Justice and Correctional Services, Singabakho Nxumalo, said a manhunt had been launched in collaboration with the SAPS to apprehend the inmates. The escapees are Morris Tyavana, Medicine Girenzi and Amos Chikwange. One South African, Sam Hlungwane also escaped.

Their crimes include theft, armed robbery and house-breaking. It was unclear how they made it out of the remand centre. However, Nxumalo said law-enforcement had instituted an investigation to reveal how the escapes happened.

He declined to be drawn into speculation regarding whether the incident suggested that security at the facility was compromised.
