National Intelligence has been roped in to help hunt down this awaiting-trial prisoner who has been on the run since he escaped from Pollsmoor Prison in July.

Thembalethu Mpalweni of Nyanga, who was brought to Pollsmoor in April, mysteriously disappeared while wardens were making their rounds on Thursday, 5 July.

He is facing charges of robbery with aggravating circumstances and has been declared a danger to society. An internal investigation has also been launched.

Yesterday, Kieron Reddy, Pollsmoor Prison Communications, confirmed the matter was handed over to SAPS National Intelligence.

The matter at first was handed over to Kirstenbosch SAPS.

“The matter we understand is being handled by National Intelligence as he has not been found yet,” he says.
