‘He is loved more than he will ever know’

Faith Enkali

The mother of Faith Enkali (20), the Namibian student who went missing in the Western Cape, South Africa, last Monday, is pleading with members of the public with information on Enkali’s whereabouts to contact the family or the police.

“I’m pleading with anyone who has any information on his whereabouts, messages, or who has had recent communication with Faith, to please share with the police and family so we can help in locating him,” Johanna Kapolo says.

She says she was informed her son, who has only been in the Cape for three weeks, went missing on 15 April around 03h00, however, a case was only registeret with the police on 18 April.

“Until today, I still have not received any update. The case was registered by the property administrator of the student residence as per the directive from the high commission,” Kapolo says.

This is his first time in the Cape, and he has no family or friends there, she says.

Enkali was studying at the Namibia University of Science and Technology before changing courses and moving to South Africa.

South African Police spokesperson officer Joseph Swartbooi says the circumstances surrounding Enkali’s disappearance are still under investigation.

“We appeal to anyone with information to call Crime Stop on 08600 10111,” he says.

One of Enkali’s friends, Jasmin Gouws, says he is the most attentive and supportive friend she has ever had.

“I am in searing pain knowing I may never hear of him again,” she says.

“He has been with me through the toughest hardships, and I want to be there to help him in any way through this. He is loved more than he will ever know, and we want him to come home,” she says.

Another friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity, says that Enkali has always been very kind to her and is a good friend.

“We used to talk every day during the pandemic especially, and he always gave the best advice,” she says.
