Escaped murder suspect nabbed in Limpopo

Polokwane – A dangerous suspect who escaped from the Malamulele Magistrate’s Court last month will be back in the dock on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Ronel Otto said Madala Daniel Mhlongo was rearrested on Monday night in his hideout in a secluded area between Letsitele and Nkowankowa.

Mhlongo was awaiting trial for a series of crimes he allegedly committed in the Ritavi and Letsitele areas, including murder, hijacking and armed robberies, mostly at businesses.
