One dead after four fugitives escape from moving police van

Ernest Malibe is on the run after escaping from police bakkie.

Police are looking for two fugitives who escaped from lawful custody by running off a moving police bakkie last Friday in Karino.

According to information at police disposal, 10 awaiting trial prisoners were being transported from the Kabokweni Magistrate’s Court to the Nelspruit Correctional Services where they are being held. Just a short distance from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport road into the N4, four tried to escape from the moving police bakkie but only Ernest Mabila and Mthobisi Nyundu managed to escape.

Meanwhile, Muzi Sifundza hit the tarmac with his head and died at the scene while Wandile Peace Shakoane sustained multiple fractures on his one leg and was taken to hospital under police guard. Sifundza was facing charges of armed robbery, attempted murder and kidnapping while Shakoane is facing a robbery charge.

The escapees, Malibe is facing a housebreaking charge and Mthobisi Nyundu is facing an assault charge. Police have opened charges of escape from lawful custody as well as an inquest. Anyone with information is requested to contact Lieutenant Colonel Erhard Stroh at 082 464 5721 or call the SAPS Crime Stop number at 08600 10111.
