Missing Namibian student in Cape Town found

Faith Enkali (20), the Namibian student who went missing in the Western Cape in South Africa (SA) last Monday, has been found, said executive director of international relations and cooperation Penda Naanda on Tuesday morning.

“Yes, indeed he has been found and the family has been informed,” Naanda said

Enkali, who has only been in the Western Cape for three weeks, went missing on 15 April, around 03h00.

A case, however, was only opened on Thursday, 18 April.

Enkali was a student at the Namibia University of Science and Technology before changing courses and moving to SA.

His mother, Johanna Kapolo, says her son has been confirmed safe after the consulate in SA paid him a visit.

“They confirmed that it is him and he is safe. They are yet to go to the police, so more communication will follow. There is no update of where he has been over the last few days,” Kapolo says.

She extended her appreciation to everyone that has been supporting the family during this difficult time.

“I’m happy and really don’t know how I can express my appreciation and gratitude,” Kapolo says.
