Now that #Mugabe has fallen what now for UK based Zimbabwean asylum claimants? http://nehandaradio.com/2017/11/23/now-mugabe-fallen-now-uk-based-zimbabwean-asylum-claimants/ http://nehandaradio.com/2017/11/23/now-mugabe-fallen-now-uk-based-zimbabwean-asylum-claimants/#comments Thu, 23 Nov 2017 20:01:52 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=159779

Alice Muzira - On  21 November 2017, Robert Gabriel Mugabe resigned as the President of Zimbabwe, after maintaining a grip on power  for 37years.

Following that resignation , the  burning  questions relating to  the future  political democratic  processes and upholding of the rule of law in Zimbabwe  are matters evidently up for debate,  perhaps  to become  clearer as time unfolds.

For now the biting question for UK based asylum claimants is this: how  does Mugabe’s  downfall impact upon  UK based Zimbabwean asylum claimants and failed asylum seekers?
