The escaped awaiting trial prisoner, Petrus Moyo was re-arrested in the early hours of this morning of the 2017-11-15 during a sting joint intelligence driven operation in Lephalale. This is after the Police in Lephalale launched a manhunt for the awaiting trial prisoner who escaped during the night on the 2017-11-13 in the Lephalale Police Station holding cells.


This escapee, Petrus Moyo aged 27 years, was arrested for the killing of Dr Werner Emslie and injuring his wife who is also a Doctor during a farm attack in September 2017.


He appeared before the Lephalale Magistrate’s Court on the 2017-11-13 and his cases were postponed until the 2017-12-14 pending further Police investigations with no bail.


It is alleged that on the 20-09-2017 at about 20:00, Dr Werner Emslie aged 55 was sitting outside the house on his farm at Afguns outside Lephalale when four unknown men, two armed with pistols (hand guns) attacked and shot him to death and further shot his 55 year old wife who is also a Doctor. She survived the attack with serious injuries and was immediately taken to the hospital for medical treatment.


During this incident, the suspects took two hand guns (pistols) and drove away with Dr Emslie's white Toyota double cub bakkie. The vehicle was later found abandoned a distance away from this house.


Following this incident, a manhunt by a Dedicated Police Task Team composed of various Police Units ensued, until he was arrested on Wednesday of the 2017-10-18 at Frankfort in the Free State Province.


He was charged with murder, housebreaking and theft and Illegal Immigration because it was confirmed that he is in the Country illegally.


This suspect will appear before the Lephalale Magistrate’s Court soon on a charge of escaping from lawful custody.


The Police investigations are continuing.
