The SAPS Gauteng Acting Provincial Commissioner Major General Mary Motsepe is confident that nine (9) prisoners who escaped at the Johannesburg Corrrectional Services will be brought to book very soon following the arrest of two warders on charges of assisting the prisoners to escape. The warders aged 34 and 36 are due to appear at the Johannesburg Magistrate Court today.


The warders were arrested yesterday afternoon by the Provincial Task team who have been working around the clock to trace the escapees and to establish as to how they managed to escape from the Correctional facilities. Seven of the escapees have since been found. Two of the escapees, Ntobeko Hlatshwayo and Sabelo Ngubane, were fatally shot during a shoot-out with police at KwaZulu-Natal. Five others were re-arrested, two at KZN, two in Gauteng and the other at Eastern Cape.


The escapees are considered to be dangerous and members of the public who know their whereabouts are warned not to confront them, but to contact the nearest police station or Crime Stop at 08600 10111 at all hours. Any information that may lead to the arrest of the prisoners may be rewarded.
