He was one of the “dangerous awaiting trial prisoners” who escaped from Hoedspruit police cells, said Mojapelo.

The arrest was made after officers belonging to the Tzaneen Tracking Team received a tip-off about suspects in a house robbery and rape case in the Sekororo Village area, leading them to the suspects and subsequent arrest. During the operation, police recovered two 203 rifles, a 9mm ADP pistol, five 9mm live rounds and four 303 live rounds.
