Malawi Police have intensified the hunt for seven hardcore criminals who escaped from Mangochi prison over the weekend and called on the public’s help to find them.
The seven escaped from the prison after digging a hole in a prison toilet.
Mangochi Police Officer in Charge Jonas Chimoto said among those who escaped are those on murder charges.
He said the criminals used a knife and an old axe handle to break through the toilet wall.
“Two of those who escaped are extremely dangerous. They are serving a sentence and they are also facing murder charges,” he said.
He was optimistic the law enforcers would catch the criminals.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
