Prison break in Mutare

Prison break in Mutare
Published: 31 July 2015 (1399 Views)

A Convict escaped from Mutare prisons on Wednesday amid revelations the Mutare Show Grounds were cordoned off  as scores of prison officers  tracked down a convict who escaped and disappeared into the adjacent Murahwa Hills.

Manica Post reported that the fugitive, Kenneth Mubvumbi (29), who is serving two years at Mutare Remand Prison, made good his escape while doing maintenance work with eight other convicts under the watchful eye of two armed prison guards.

Mubvumbi tricked one of the guards into believing that he was relieving himself, yet he was scaling the perimeter fence.

Clad in his khaki prison garb, he vanished into the nearby thickets.

After realising that Mubvumbi had taken long to come out of the toilet, the guard went to investigate and got the shock of his life when he realised that the convict had actually escaped.
