In a statement, the university said:

She is in good health and has been reunited with her family in Ladysmith.

The university shared that the student was last seen leaving the campus, taking a taxi to an undisclosed location and was observed on other video footage in Phuthaditjhaba during the time she was missing.

During the period of the student being missing, it was reported that the incident led to fellow students, family and people outside of the student community being worried.

The university management extends its gratitude to the South African Police Service (SAPS), the institution’s Protection Services, and the university community for the role they played in ensuring that Xaba was found.
