ABOUT 10 armed police officers stormed The Nation Editor Bheki Makhubu’s residences looking for him.

ABOUT 10 armed police officers stormed The Nation Editor Bheki Makhubu’s residences looking for him.

The armed police started at Makhubu’s parental home in Luyengo where they are said to have in a dramatic stunt surrounded one of his (Makhubu) relatives before declaring what they were about.

They were told that Makhubu was not there and suggested that they visit his Mbabane residence. There was a minor altercation as the police suspected that Makhubu was hiding.

They eventually left.

The police later stormed Makhubu’s Mbabane residence where they found his wife and children. 

“Again, they did the same thing as they surrounded his house and demanded that he come out. They were told that he was not back from work. They left a message that he should report to the Mbabane police station tomorrow (today),” said a source.

It remains a mystery why police wanted the bellied and outspoken Makhubu who is fresh from attending the wedding of the year between Prime Minister Sibusiso Dlamini and Joy Maziya on Saturday.

The storming of Makhubu’s residences came after reports that well-known human rights lawyer Thulani Maseko had been arrested in connection with an article he wrote for Makhubu’s magazine.

Police PRO Wendy Hleta said from her consultation, she could not establish Maseko’s arrest.

Meanwhile, Makhubu last night confirmed the storming of his residences by the police.

“I was called by relatives at home who told me that police, about 10 of them came looking for me. 

“I also heard there was drama as they surrounded one of my relatives’ houses demanding that I come out. I was not there for God’s sake,” said Makhubu.

He clarified that he was not on the run but was not at any of the places that the police raided.

“My wife also told me that the police came to our Mbabane residence where they demanded to see me. I will be going to the police station tomorrow (today) to hear what they wanted. Once again, I am not on the run,” said Makhubu.
