UK Home Office reverse Gamu visa ruling

Things are looking up for X Factor singer Gamu Nhengu after her family won round two of a legal battle to stay in the United Kingdom.

The 18 year old from Zimbabwe was controversially axed from the popular ITV talent contest after reports suggested she could be deported after her mum’s visa was not renewed. First the family was granted the right to appeal and this week the UK Home office agreed to allow them to lodge a fresh visa application.

Family lawyer Frances Farrell, said: “The family are pleased that the Home Office have withdrawn their decisions and decided to reconsider my clients’ cases. The family are hopeful that they will now be granted leave to remain in the UK. They want to thank everyone for all the wonderful support they have had.”
