PICS: Limpopo police look for 6 prison escapees

Six prisoners, who had managed to escape from the Tinmyn police station’s holding cells outside Mokopane in Limpopo on Saturday, are still on the run.

According to police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo, the detained men slipped away “during the daily routine activities.” An investigation is under way to determine if the escape was orchestrated by possible moles within the police force.

Below is the list of the escapees and charges they are facing:

Christopher Langa, believed to be aged 22, linked to a string of residential burglaries that had occurred in Tinmyn
Tshurai Fabiano, 22, theft charges
Mahlatsi Lucky Setumula, 21, two counts of rape committed around Tinmyn
Tawanda Goandepi, 21, a charge of rape committed around Tinmyn
Victor Dube, 31, a charge of pointing of firearm, assault with grevious bodily harm committed around Tinmyn and Contravention of the Illegal Immigration Act
Simbarashe Ngwezi, 27, a charge of Contravention of Illegal Immigration Act

The police request that anyone with information that can lead to the rearrest of these escapees would contact Detective Warrant Officer Rasimati Ngobeni at 063 103 3301, the Crime Stop at 08600 10111, or visit the nearest police station.
