Police in Taita Taveta have rearrested an inmate prisoner who had escaped from the Wundanyi prison last month. The prisoner was arrested at his hideout in Maungu by APs.
Wundanyi prison boss Emmanuel Odhiambo said Mohammed Salale was arrested on Wednesday evening. "We were coordinating with our administration police counterparts in Maungu who are well versed with the area," said Odhiambo.
Mohammed, 28, escaped from the prisons on January, 10 while working with four other inmates on a farm. Witnesses said the suspect escaped on foot while they were cutting grass in the morning.
He was serving a two year jail term for burglary and was only left with eight months to complete his sentence, according to records at the prison.
Prison warders at the facility have been having sleepless nights searching for the suspect who was said to be hiding in caves within the region. The suspect was being held at the Wundanyi police station as he awaits to be arraigned in court.
