custody once they are re-arrested. The Botswana Prisons Services (BPS) spokesperson Senior Superintendent Wamorena Ramolefe also confirmed the incident in an interview with The Monitor last week. "I can confirm that two prisoners escaped from lawful custody last Thursday morning, although I cannot disclose further details because the matter is still under police investigation. Prison authorities have also launched an internal investigation that is why I cannot go into detail on the matter," he said.
