Outrage as Senegalese best student goes missing in France

The news of the brilliant Senegalese young lady who went missing in France mysteriously has so far triggered concerns in her home country and Africa at large. 

The 20-year-old Jiary Sow who won prestigious awards in Senegal after emerging the most brilliant student among her year colleagues was granted a national scholarship to study in Paris before the unfortunate happened.

The French authorities have so far opened an investigation in search of the young talented student who has since not reported to school after the Christmas holidays.

Reports have it that, Senegalese President Macky Sall sent investigators to assist in the search whilst Sow’s classmates who are equally worried by her disappearance are also doing their best to look for her.

According to Daouda Mbaye, a member of the Senegalese community in Paris, “neither her parents, nor her friends, nor her guardian, nor the embassy have had any news,” 

Apart from winning other prestigious awards, Sow was crowned Senegal’s best student, after emerging first in national high-school competitions in 2018 and 2019, leading to her scholarship; the young lady has published her own novel just last year as well. 

The search for Sow is still ongoing; kindly alert authorities if you have any information that could help find her whereabout.
