She said the jailbreak occurred on Wednesday afternoon near the army barracks in the district of Moroto.

She said:

They overpowered the warden who was on duty.

The prisoners were “hardcore” criminals who were jailed for offences relating to cattle theft in the region

They took off their clothes to avoid being spotted in their distinctive yellow uniforms and ran into the foothills of Mount Moroto.

The pursuit is continuing.

She said, as she warned the escaped prisoners might raid homes for clothes.

It was not immediately possible to reach prison authorities or local officials.
