By Business Correspondent | Scores of Zimbabweans are being bundled up and arrested around the United Kingdom as the British government entered a secret deal to deport hundreds of Zimbabwean asylum seekers.
The UK government is chartering a flight to deport at least 150 undocumented Zimbabweans from the 21-22 July 2021, ZimEye can reveal.
The secret deal was entered into in meetings held between the 22nd and 23rd June 2021, ZimEye reveals.
Those to be deported include mere immigration offenders, but the media will be advised that they are all convicted criminals, the meetings concluded.
The meetings were attended by a Zim Foreign Affairs Diplomat and one Emily Hardy who is the Migration Delivery Officer at the High Commission in Harare.
A private jet has been booked to fly out of London Heathrow on the 21st July 2021 and will land at RGM Airport the following day.
Reached for a comment, a UK Home Office spokesperson told ZimEye: “The public rightly expects us to remove those who have no right to be in the UK.”
On the legalities of the operation, they said, “we do not comment on operational matters.”
Commenting on the development immigration solicitor, Andrew Nyamayaro said while he was not aware of the flight details, he knows: “at least 8 Zimbabweans who have been bundled at reporting centres and taken to the government’s removal centre near Heathrow Airport.”
The development comes as proven jobs scammers and agents, Olinda Chapel, and Caroline Mujeyi Nyakudya went on a campaign illegally charging desperate job seekers in Zimbabwe claiming the UK govt is on a mass recruitment exercise for nurse aids, while withholding data limits imposed on their licenses by the Home Office. The British Police described the adverts as a scam and encouraged victims to report it on number +443001232040.
