The whereabouts of Mongezi Mcunukelwa and Sbonelo Nkosingiphe Thwala are still unknown.

Police spokesperson Mavela Masondo says it’s unclear at this stage how they escaped.

“We have since launched a manhunt for the men who are facing several charges of murder,” says Masondo.

Masondo has warned that the 21-year-old Thwala and 31-year-old Mcunukelwa are a threat to the community’s safety.

 “We would like to make an appeal to the community not to apprehend them because we believe that these are very dangerous criminals.”
