Description : The dream of 77 years old Elias Molise Malhibela of being reunited with his family after 37 years is becoming reality. He will be touching down in his country of birth, Lesotho, on the 12th of June 2015 after the Namibia Red Cross Society, the Lesotho Red Cross Society and the International Committee of the Red Cross managed to trace his family and also secured funding for his ticket to go back home. Malhibela has been living in the coastal town of Henties Bay, Namibia, for the past 37 years and his wish was to go back home and be reunited with his family in Lesotho. The elderly man's face was beaming with happiness as he bade farewell to his neighbours and acquaintances who cared for him for decades chanting "I am going back to Maseru".
