A Whawha prisoner Washington Timba (20) of Mwanza Village under Chief Bangure, Chirumhanzu, who escaped and was later rearrested has told a magistrate that he decided to run away because inmates were being made to work hard on empty stomachs.
He pleaded guilty to escaping from lawful custody when he appeared before Gweru magistrate Ms Judith Taruvinga who sentenced him to a year in jail that will run concurrently with the previous nine months imprisonment for theft and unlawful entry. In passing the sentence, the magistrate said Timba acted in an unlawful manner.
