Prisoner sitting for exam arrested after escaping during a toilet break


In Kenya, a 20-year-old inmate in Bomet prison was on Friday, April 9, arrested after attempting to escape.

Vincent Kirui, had been taken to a local Secondary School where he was to sit his Biology practical paper for his Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) examination.

According to a warden, the inmate asked for permission to use the pit latrine in the school where he jumped out and then over the fence to a nearby village.

The warden, who declined to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said he thought the inmate had taken too long in the latrine before he broke in only to find the room empty.

The Bomet Central Police Commander, Musa Imamai Omar, said a contingent of security forces acted quickly and launched a serious manhunt, combing Bomet town and its environs.

Kirui was said to have locked himself inside a house in a nearby Chebirir village where he was arrested after a tip-off from members of the public.

The escapee is serving seven years behind bars after being found guilty of causing grievous harm to his girlfriend in January 2021.
