JOHANNESBURG - Police are still searching for five suspects who escaped from the Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Centre in Limpopo.

One of the escapees was rearrested on Friday afternoon.

Earlier this week, six prisoners escaped from the facility after warders went on strike.

Police say they are following several leads to track down the remaining five escapees.

The police's Motlafela Mojapelo explains: “We have a team dedicated to finding the remaining suspects. We believe the community will assist us with information that will lead to them being rearrested.”
