Cape Town man found alive in eSwatini, believed dead for 6 years

A Delft mother who believed that her son died six years ago found out that he is actually alive but in another country.

Jane Daniels held a memorial service for her son Denzil Daniels after he disappeared without a trace only to be recently found alive in eSwatini formerly known as Swaziland.

EWN reporter Lauren Isaacs says last week, eSwatini police contacted police in Delft informing them Daniels had been found scratching bins outside a supermarket.

Jane Daniels says she was happy to hear that her son was still alive although she thought he had died six years ago.

I prayed every morning and evening for God to help me find him if he is still alive.

Since hearing the news she is been trying to find help to get her son back to South Africa but no one is willing to help her.

According to Isaacs, two Delft police officers have now, in their personal capacity, taken it upon themselves to fetch him at the border between South Africa and eSwatini.

They are appealing to the public for financial assistance.
