Pretoria - The trial of serial escapee Bongani Moyo was postponed on Monday as he was not feeling well.

Moyo was due in court for his attempts at escaping from custody.

His representative Donald Somo told the court that his client was not feeling well.

"He told me that he had taken his medication this morning without having had anything to eat," he said.

The trial was postponed to April 2.

Moyo escaped from the Pretoria Magistrate's Court while on crutches in August after escaping from the Boksburg Pison in March 2011.

He tried to break out of the Pretoria Central Prison on Wednesday, but was stopped when he was seen by a newspaper vendor.
