Two of the four trial-awaiting prisoners this year are still at large.

Two of the four trial-awaiting prisoners who broke out of the Divundu Correctional Facility in the Kavango East Region in April this year are still at large.

The prisoners, who are regarded as dangerous, escaped the facility in April after they allegedly assaulted an officer on duty during lock-up time, taking the keys of the cells and fleeing.

Two of them were re-arrested two weeks after they escaped.

Namibian Correctional Service (NCS) Officer in Charge at the Divundu Correctional Facility, Commissioner Semeon Kaypiti told Nampa upon inquiry yesterday that the two remaining prisoners are still at large.

Kaypiti said the two fugitives have not yet been found since they broke free from the facility, adding the two might have absconded into Angola or any other neighbouring country.
