Hlatshwayo and Nxumalo briefly appeared in Secunda Magistrate’s Court on Monday on their additional charges of escaping from lawful custody.

On April 8 all five suspects jumped the fence at the police station’s holding cells and were seen by a member of the community.

The public is warned not to confront them but contact Lt Col Dumisani Mbokane on 082-556-5630 or the crime stop number on 086-00-10111, or visit the nearest police station.
