  • Indigenous activists took their land rights protest to the Sunrise broadcast from the Gold Coast

Eight Cameroonian athletes have absconded from their accommodation at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Patrick Ogwel, the team manager and assistant secretary at the National Council of Sports told Xinhua that two weightlifters did not return to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games village on Wednesday.

"The Australian government is working closely with the organising committee and worldwide stakeholders to ensure that Commonwealth Games officials and athletes are aware of their visa responsibilities", the ABF said in a statement on Thursday.

Uganda sent 69 athletes to the Games to participate in 11 disciplines.

Eight of Cameroon's 24 competing athletes have gone missing over the course of three days, leaving in three groups.

He also said a "formal complaint" had been made with the "Australian police".

"Why did they take action on both athletes?"

Nso said the rest of Team Cameroon - 34 in total, including basketballers and two other weightlifters - and their officials have already left Australia.

Although the Australian Border Force has been informed, the athletes are not yet in breach of their visa conditions.

According to the BBC, press attache, Simon Molombe reported the "desertion" adding that the missing athletes were last seen at different times on Monday and Tuesday.

Two Ugandan rugby sevens players, Benon Kizza and Philip Pariyo, went missing after Glasgow 2014.

"We would appreciate them sticking within the law, enjoying themselves, but sticking within the law", organising committee boss Peter Beattie told reporters. They are here on a temporary activity visa and are free to travel around the country until it expires in early May.

Mr Molombe said the incident was very worrying.

Before the Games began, the home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, warned that all athletes would be closely monitored to ensure they did not overstay their visas and returned home after competition ended.

African athletes committing vanishing acts at the Australian Commonwealth Games have increased to 13, with five more from Uganda and Rwanda also disappearing.
