Latest on cheeky prisoner who escaped from jail after he asked for permission to relieve himself


A CHEEKY prisoner, who asked for permission to relieve himself before escaping from custody at Chinhoyi Prison, has been nabbed again.

Enock Kamuchengi (41) of Murombedzi, appeared before Chinhoyi magistrate, Batsiranai Madzingira, charged with escaping from lawful custody.

Kamuchengi had been sentenced to a 48-month jail term for unlawful entry, and 12 months were suspended, for five years.

Prosecuting, Olivia Mukaro, told the court that on August 18, at around 2:30pm at Chinhoyi Prison, Kamuchengi, was working at the prison car wash, under the care of prison warden Tawanda Antonyo.
