When the accused made their appearance in court yesterday before magistrate Ishmael Molobe, prosecutor Kelebonye Matsapa told the court that the police arrested Mapunganyi on Tuesday around the Tutume area.

“All the accused persons entered Botswana through different ungazetted points and they are from Zimbabwe. Moyo, Sibanda (Methuli) and Mapunganyi have already been convicted of the charges they were facing at the High Court,” said Matsapa.

The investigating team, Matsapa said, is still looking for other 14 escapees who include three locals. “We plead with the court to remand the accused in custody in order to give the police time to arrest other escapees and to continue with their investigations.

We have hope that the investigations team is doing their job diligently and will soon arrest the other escaped prisoners,” said Matsapa. When asked to comment on what the prosecution said, Moyo admitted that he unlawfully escaped from jail. He said: “I did not resist arrest when I was arrested.
