Escaped prisoners are still on the run
TWO PRISONERS who made a daring escape at Joburg’s South Gauteng High Court two days ago are still at large.
Police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo said awaiting-trial suspects Mongezi Mcunukelwa, 31, and Sbonelo Nkosingiphile Thwala, 25, were still being traced by a team of senior detectives who were also investigating their escape.
The two had been appearing at the court when they escaped at about 2pm on Wednesday. No one was injured.
Masondo said the pair posed a serious danger to the public. They are each facing two charges of murder.
Anyone with information of their whereabouts has been asked to call their nearest police station or Crime Stop at 086 001 0111.
