The two recaptured Boeremag fugitives have appeared under heavy police guard in the Pretoria Magistrates Court. Rudi Gouws and Herman van Rooyen were nabbed at a townhouse complex in Lyttleton shortly after three this morning.

Herman van Rooyen and Rudi Gouws seemed tired when they appeared dressed in shorts and T-shirts. Police say the two Boeremag fugitives were arrested in a security complex, when task force members stormed the duplex, they were armed with fully automatic R1 rifles but police overpowered them.

They are facing charges of escape and the illegal possession of firearms.

The two will remain in custody
Sally de Beer, a police spokesperson, says police cannot rule out the possibility of further arrests of suspects for aiding them during their time on the run.

The two men will appear again in the Pretoria High Court on the January 29. They will remain in custody in the city's maximum security prison, C-Max.
