AN ALLEGED car hijacker who was severely beaten up by villagers mysteriously escaped from hospital in Mpumalanga.
Mathata Nchabeleng was under 24-hour guard at Voortrekker Hospital in Mokopane.

Nchabeleng was beaten up last month in Lefiso village near Marapyane when a hijacked car got stuck in the sand, forcing the two suspects to flee on foot.
He is back in hospital with serious injuries sustained in the accident.
"He was with his co-accused, Chokwe, who was arrested after evading police for over a month."
