Sinayo Gqozo has been missing since Friday, January 31, when she arrived in Cape Town from King William’s Town, in the Eastern Cape. She made her way here to register for her Honours degree with the University of Cape Town (UCT).
The 25-year-old’s brother Mandla is pleading for anyone with information of her whereabouts to come forward.
“She arrived in Cape Town on Friday and last called us on Saturday morning. But according to her network provider, her number was last used that day around 4pm in the Rondebosch area,” he said to TimesLIVE.
Gqozo had previously pursued her studies at the University of the Western Cape (UWC).
“She’s not someone who would just not contact us. In fact, her parents sent her money and she never came back to them. She’s a very grateful person – she wouldn’t just keep quiet,” said Mandla. “What’s even more worrying is that her WhatsApp account looks like it was disconnected, as we don’t even see a profile picture. We don’t understand what’s happening.”
Gqozo was scheduled to attend her introductory classes on Monday, February 3, but was not present for any of them.
