At the time of the escape, Chrispin Nyeleti, of Nyeleti Village in Mazabuka, was serving a two-year jail term for burglary and theft.
Southern Province deputy Police Chief, Milner Muyambango who confirmed the arrest said yesterday that Nyeleti escaped from custody with three other inmates who are still on the run.
