Fugitive Prisoner Rearrested While Drinking Beer in Figtree

In a surprising turn of events, beer proved to be the Achilles heel for a prison inmate who had escaped prison.

Aleck Jack a nineteen-year-old inmate, was sentenced to four months behind bars when he appeared before a Bulawayo magistrate facing a charge of escaping from lawful custody.

After a full trial, Jack was convicted, and the magistrate handed him a six-month jail term. Fortunately, Jack will spend four months in jail after the magistrate suspended two months on the condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years. The magistrate described Jack as a dangerous criminal because he escaped from lawful custody. The magistrate said sentencing him would likely make him reform and deter would-be offenders.

Sometime in September this year, the court heard, that Jack, nearing the end of his sentence for assault, was assigned to work at a brick manufacturing company located in Bulawayo’s Cement Siding suburb. Seizing an opportunity, he decided to make his escape when his supervisor sent him to collect items from the company’s offices. Later that evening, during a routine roll call by prison wardens, they discovered Jack’s absence, and a manhunt was immediately launched.
