Gaut­eng po­lice spokesper­son Cap­tain Mavela Ma­sondo said await­ing tri­al­ists Mongezi Mcunukelwa, 31, and Sbonelo Nkosingiphile Th­wala, 25, were still be­ing traced by a team of se­nior de­tec­tives who were also in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cir­cum­stances of the es­cape.

The two had been ap­pear­ing at the court when they pulled off the es­cape at around 2pm on Wed­nes­day.

Both of the ac­cused face two counts of mur­der.
