PO­LICE in Le­bowak­gomo out­side Polokwane in Lim­popo have launched a man­hunt for an await­ing-trial pris­oner who es­caped.

Con­sta­ble Ma­phure Manamela said: “The court or­der­lies booked out pris­on­ers to Le­bowak­gomo Mag­is­trate’s Court at about 8.30 in the morn­ing. Af­ter the pro­ceed­ings, the pris­on­ers were es­corted back to the po­lice sta­tion in a po­lice van. The po­lice opened the ve­hi­cle to es­cort the pris­on­ers back to the hold­ing cells but one pris­oner es­caped and van­ished.

“He has been iden­ti­fied as Brian Madoda, 22, from Zim­babwe, who was ar­rested un­der the il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion Act.”
