The South African Police Service (SAPS) in Letsitele outside Tzaneen launched a massive manhunt for six awaiting trial prisoners who escaped from the holding cells Saturday afternoon.
According to police spokesperson, Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, it is alleged that the six awaiting trial prisoners escaped when they were busy being given food by the police.
He said anyone with information that can lead to the re-arrest of these escapees, should their local SAPS or crime stop number.
