Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, has commended the police for offering…

Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, has commended the police for offering a reward for information that will lead to the arrest of convicted murderer, Phelo Mtala who escaped from the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on the 17th of May. He was convicted in 2016 of three murders and the possession of an illegal firearm, but was appearing in Wynberg on another matter. Mtala had been due to return to Pollsmoor prison after his court appearance, but managed to escape by allegedly putting his fingerprints on somebody else’s release form, who had been in court with him on the day. A different inmate was then taken back to Pollsmoor instead of Mtala. Provincial Community Safety spokesperson, Cayla Murray: “The Department is also continuing to provide support to the SAPS through its Watching Briefs Unit, where members of the unit attend courts to observe cases and to detect any police inefficiencies, which are then referred to the Provincial Commissioner for his attention and action. Under the leadership of Minister Albert Fritz, the Department of Community Safety remains committed to working with the SAPS to bring down crime and make our communities safer across the province. However, the fight against crime also requires the help and support of citizens and so we urge anyone who has information on Mtala’s whereabouts to come forward.”
