  • One of the three terrorism convicts who escaped from Kamiti Maximum Prison before they were recaptured has vowed to escape again if a chance arises.

    Musharafa Abdalla, also known as Alex Shikanda, made the shocking remarks while speaking to civilians on Monday, November 29 at the Anti-Terror Police Unit headquarters in Kahawa Law Courts.

    Abdalla stated that he could not imagine spending another term in jail, and vehemently stated that if an opportunity to escape presented itself to him again, he would absolutely go for it.

    "I wanted a shot at freedom in my first attempt because I have already served ten years in jail," he stated.

    He cited that he would try to escape again because his jail term would be added after they are sentenced afresh for their escape.

    "I have to escape because I know am going back to serve additional time to what I am already in jail for," he lamented.

    The convicts, who are now known by the moniker Kamiti Three, escaped the Kamiti Maximum Prison on the night of November 15 by dislodging a brick on their cell wall and using ropes made of blankets to scale two high walls.

    Sources familiar with the case reveal that they used a private car that was waiting to ferry from Kamiti to Machakos, where their plan was foiled after another car set to ferry them from Machakos to Somalia failed to show up.

    This forced them to use a public service vehicle, which blew their cover as they were recognized in Kitui where they were nabbed by the police.

    The trio told the court that they were helped by prison staff to escape from the tightly-guarded institution, revealing how the wardens were intricate cogs in the escape plot.

    Investigations revealed that the prison officer received the money in exchange for his services, such as overseeing the masonry work that the convicts were assigned, as a guise to allow them to drill the hole through which they slipped through.

    The said prison officer was allegedly paid by sources that were traced to come from as far as Somalia.

    Investigations are underway to determine the amount of money that was sent to the officer, which is estimated to go up to hundreds of thousands of shillings.
