Bongani Moyo tries to escape - again
Pretoria - Serial jail-breaker Bongani Moyo was one of the three men who allegedly tried to escape from Pretoria Central Prison on Wednesday morning, a correctional services official said.
A newspaper vendor saw them breaking out and raised the alarm, spokesperson Sibongile Khumalo said.
"They were arrested not far from prison."
Moyo, Themba Dube, and Khumbulani Sibanda, serving a 20 year sentence, used their orange overalls to scale the wall.
Khumalo said more details would be available later on Wednesday.
This was Moyo's third escape attempt. He walked out of the Pretoria Magistrate's Court in August 2011, while on crutches.
He previously escaped from the Boksburg prison in March 2011. He was re-arrested near the Beitbridge border post in Limpopo, while making his way back into South Africa from Zimbabwe.
