MBABANE – The last time he saw his father, he was eight years old. Sibusiso Sibanyoni (28) from Mpumalanga is looking for his father, Jeremiah Makhanya, who was a police officer in South Africa.


Sibanyoni arrived in the country on Tuesday looking for his father. He said when his father left SA, he told him that he could always come to Eswatini to look for him when he became an adult.
On his arrival he went to the Manzini Police Station where he also spent the night since he did not have a place to sleep.

Police in Manzini referred him to the police headquarters, as they informed him that they could not help him since there wasn’t enough information that could help locate his father.
 Sibanyoni said his father worked in Pretoria and his mother Fetshi Sibanyoni told him that Makhanya arrived in South Africa in 1980.
“He tried to take me with him when he left when I was eight, but my mother did not allow him,” he said.


His mother also informed Sibanyoni that Makhanya had informed her that he had another woman he lived with, when he was in Eswatini.
On the last day he saw his father, Sibanyoni said Makhanya was in the company of another man.


Sibanyoni said he had been planning to look for his father for years, but he had to work and could not start the search. The South African man stated that he took some days off from his place of employment to search for his father and was planning on going back to Mpumalanga on Friday.


Chief Police Information and Communications Officer Superintendent Phindile Vilakati said if the father was out there he should come forward.
“If anyone knows of Makhanya’s whereabouts they can contact 7606 2312. If he also sees the article he should contact us so he can be reunited with his son,” Vilakati said.
