Cape Town teacher becomes second missing SA teacher in Vietnam since May

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation says it's helping the families of two missing South African teachers in Vietnam.

Capetonian Mushfiq Daniels has become the second South African teacher to go missing in Vietnam in a space of two month.

The family of Mushfiq Daniels, 28, from Surrey Estate in Cape Town, says he was last seen on July 5 in Ho Chi Min City. Daniels has been working as an English teacher in the country since March 2018.

Mushfig Daniels is the second South African teacher to go missing in Vietnam in the past few weeks.

John Bothma, 22, from Gauteng, was last heard from on May 18. He had been visiting a friend in Ho Chi Minh City. His phone had been off since then and friends and family have been trying to piece together what could have happened.

Bothma had been doing short-team teaching stints since entering the south-east Asian country in November last year, but was hoping to secure a longer contract.

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation says it’s helping the families of two missing South African teachers in Vietnam.

Dirco spokesperson Nelson Kgwete says the department has been keeping in touch with the embassy in Hanoi in both the cases of Daniels and Bothma.

Kgwete says Daniels’ family has flown down to the region to help in the search for him.

Bothma’s mother, Coleen, is hoping to do the same.
