A notorious habitual thief who escaped from Mangochi prison mid March is back in prison after he was caught stealing in a house he broke into on April 2.
Mangochi Police assistant spokesperson Amina Daudi confirmed that Esau Donald has been thrown back behind bars after he broke into the house of Pastor Isaac Bingu.
“After escaping from the prison, he was hiding within the Mangochi Town,” said Daudi.
She said after he broke into the house of the Christ Citadel cleric, Donald was caught and a fight ensued.
During the scuffle, the thief had bitten the ear of Pastor and a finger of the pastor’s son, injuring them but they managed to overpower the thief and caught him.
Donald is among the six thugs that escaped from Mangochi prison on March 20 through digging a hole in the prison toilet.
Daudi said Donald has been charged with escaping from lawful custody, burglary and theft and he is likely to serve the sentences if convicted after completing the sentences he fled before completion.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
