The three namely Joseph Juma, Mohammed Abdi and Musharraf Abdalla escaped from the highly guarded Kamiti Maximum Prison on November 14th raising fear in the country and immediate government response.

A Ksh 60 million bounty was released before they were arrested in a remote village in Kitui as they attempted to enter Boni Forest and into Somalia.

Area residents became suspicious of the trio as they asked for direction to Boni Forest with one of them looking tired. They also bought water and biscuits along the way on cash.

It took the intervention of reserve police to arrest the three before they were handed to ATPU officers and flown to Kamiti where they were welcomed by Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i.

The CS promised a number of changes at the facility to prevent such instances tp occur in the future as he blamed prison warders for their laxity.
