Johannesburg - A serial rapist and killer has escaped from a court in Palm Ridge on Tuesday, it was reported.

Lungisane Mdlolo is believed to have escaped while being brought up from the court’s holding cells, tweeted eNCA’s Karyn Maughan. She said he was not wearing leg irons.

Mdlolo was convicted of three rapes, one murder, five armed robberies and 10 counts of house-breaking.

A prosecutor told Maughan that Mdlolo’s victims are terrified as they fear he will come after them.

It was said that the clothes he wore to rob his victims were soaked in a bucket filled with water and muti.

He allegedly robbed a group of women who were preparing for a wedding ceremony, reported The Star in September.
