Es­caped pris­on­ers are still on the run

Pretoria News - - METRO - | Lindile Sifile

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.
