Prision Escape

A 35-year-old man who defiled his niece aged four escaped from Gatundu Law Courts shortly after he was sentenced to 59 years in prison.

Police and prison officials said John Gathekia Karanja escaped as he was being escorted from court to the cells.

Authorities are questioning how the convict escaped from the eyes of security personnel at the precincts without any use of firearms to stop him on Tuesday afternoon December 6.

Karanja had been picked up from Thika Prison remanded and taken to court for his judgment.

He was then sentenced to 59 years in jail.

And as the officers were escorting him back to the court cells within the court corridors he allegedly sneaked and jumped over the court wall and escaped.

The officers who were escorting him tried to chase him in vain as he disappeared into the bushes behind the court building within Ituru village.

Police were mobilized in effort to get him and even used their dogs for tracking in vain.

A team handling the matter said he comes from Gatundu South, Ndarungu Ward, Gacharange sub-location and Gitwe village.

Kiambu head of police Perminus Kioi said efforts to trace the convict are ongoing and appealed to locals to help with information in case they see him.
