The prisoners are said to have broken through the iron bars of the prison windows. They also broke a portion of the wall before escaping through the fence.

A prison’s department official, Singabakho Nxumalo is quoted as saying that the prisoners “broke the iron bars on the window, went through to break a portion of the wall and escaped through the fence.””

“The investigation is still ongoing but it is something we are taking quite seriously as the department,” Nxumalo added.
