Johannesburg - Four more people, including a prison warder, were arrested on Monday, just a day after the arrests of two of South Africa's most wanted criminals, Gauteng police said.

Colonel Neville Malila said the warder helped the wanted men escape. The other three were arrested for aiding and abetting a known criminal.

Earlier this week police asked the public to help track down the country's four most wanted criminals: Khumbulani Sibanda, a man known only as "Ogies", Bongani Mojo and Victor Baloyi.

The men had been linked to scores of bank robberies, cash-in-transit heists and murders.

Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela said Sibanda and Ogies were arrested during a police raid at a house in Orange Grove on Sunday. A Zimbabwean man was shot dead during the raid.

Bank robbery clothes found in house

"We [The police] got information that Sibanda was in a house in Orange Grove," he said at the time.

"When police got [to] the house, a man pulled out a gun and started shooting at police and that was when he was shot dead. His passport indicated that he was a Zimbabwean national," Polela said.

Sibanda's clothes, which he shown was wearing in a bank's closed circuit television footage, were found in the next room.

"He [Sibanda] had managed to sneak out of the house either during the raid or just before," he said.

"A while later, him and Ogies were found in another flat on the street and arrested."

Sibanda, 37, was wanted in connection with 13 bank robberies and was thought to be an accomplice of Mojo. They escaped from Boksburg prison on the same day.

Ogies was also wanted in connection with bank robberies. It was suspected that he was an accomplice of Mojo and Sibanda.
