South Africa President Jacob Zuma has urged the public who may have information about a United Nations employee who went missing on Human Rights Day during a hike in Table Mountain to contact the police.
“We appeal to anyone with information to assist the police to locate Ms Nikoi so that she can be reunited with her family. The South African Police and other departments such as Social Development will continue to provide as much support as possible during this difficult time,” said Zuma.
Charlotte Nikoi, a Ghanaian citizen and associate director for human resources at the U.N. children's agency arrived in Cape Town on March 17 to celebrate her wedding anniversary with her family and disappeared on 21st March when she and her daughter went hiking up Platteklip Gorge.
Her husband, Chris Nikoi, said her 22 years old daughter who will be graduating at the end of May is distressed about her mother’s disappearance and the other two are receiving counselling in the US where they live.
Police spokesperson Noloyiso Rwexana said the “search for the missing person is ongoing, all leads are followed, the missing person has not been found yet.”
