Although the winds would have blown in their favour, the incessant downpour might not have been forgiving for the prisoners who chose to stay in their cells being soaked by the rains, rather than making a run for it.

According to the Zbc, the prison which has 29 high-risk prisoners and 54 others of less escape risk housed in cells, did not report any missing or escaped prisoner.

Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) officer commanding Masvingo, Assistant Commissioner Social Ndanga told State broadcaster ZBC that no prisoners had escaped.

He said they moved in to repair the cells and re-housed the inmates in other cells, according to ZBC.
