National Party spokesperson for Sport and Recreation Nikki Kaye is heading to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games tomorrow to show her support for our Kiwi athletes.

Games officials said the athletes had not breached their visas and were able to move around Australia as they liked, ABC News reported.

The nation's two other weightlifters and men's basketball team had left Australia and were en route to Cameroon, team officials said.

"These people and others that might have a similar objective need to hear this message very clearly - they aren't going to game the system", he said.

Molombe expressed sadness following the disappearance of the eight athletes.

"Nobody said anything, they did not give any condition, they just left", he said.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for an independent investigation into the deaths during the protests. Hamas official Mohammed Thuraya said, "This is our duty to our people, to ease the suffering of our citizens".

"It's obviously disappointing that some of the athletes who've come didn't compete as they were scheduled to compete", he said.

"It's very worrying, it's not good for the image of the country".

Three weightlifters and two boxers from Cameroon went missing on Tuesday but a team official on Thursday confirmed the total had risen to eight, one third of the country's 24 athletes.

"If there is a breach then [Home Affairs Minister] Peter Dutton and the department will deal with it", he said.

The Commonwealth Games Federation said it would monitor the situation but athletes had "the right to travel freely" on their visas.

Athlete visas for the Commonwealth Games expire on May 15, Grevemberg said.
