Time running out for Gamu as government lifts ban

Friday October 15, 2010

X Factor favourite Gamu Nhengu's remaining days in the UK look to be numbered after the government lifted an deportation ban.

It signalled the end of a four-year prohibition on deportations to Zimbabwe now the government is happy with what they see as the improved situation in the country.

An estimated 10,000 failed Zimbabwean asylum seekers will be affected by the new ruling, and it's thought Gamu will be among them.

Her family were told they must return to their country after Gamu's mother's visa application was turned down.
