Zimbabwe Fines And Deports British Citizen

Zimbabwe Fines And Deports British Citizen

A British national has been sentenced to serve one month in prison or pay a fine of $20 000 after living in Zimbabwe for more than two years without a valid permit.

She will be deported to her home country after serving the sentence or paying the fine.

Irene Susan Catherine Ager (65) who resided at 3 Purbeck Gose, Highlands in Harare appeared in court on Friday, facing charges of contravening Section 29 of the Immigration Act.

Ager had lived in Zimbabwe for 685 days after her holiday visa had expired.

She had entered the country in 2020.

Ager pleaded guilty to the charge when she appeared before Harare magistrate, Mr Tafadzwa Miti.

Prosecutor, Ms Polite Chikiwa, said the accused arrived in Zimbabwe on March 11, 2020, and was given a double-entry holiday visa, which expired on April 10, 2020.

Upon expiry of the visa, the accused never extended her permit to stay in Zimbabwe, and overstayed for 685 days leading to her arrest on February 24, 2022.

....and when South Africa put into higher gear the arrest and deportation of Zimbos in SA, even the president will go there to negotiate. if other countries' were as harsh as ours, jail all over the world would be full of Zimbos. Zimbos staying in SA illegally can fill SA jails to the brim.

Wow! These Immigration Office guys really are amazingly heartless. How many foreigners are in this nation for over 10 years and they don't care? Is this some kind of beef? Why her a British Citizen? Why? Yes it is their job yet this whole thing in the COVID era... After everything she had reasons to remain... Are we doing this for fun or looking for other sanctions to be imposed for no good reason. It doesn't mean we are cowards... Ask yourselves why? Why why? Why did they do it ? If she is unharmed it is better.

• < The King Of Serpents> Then they are not doing their job well. What comes around goes around.
• < Maseko > It is quite funny my guy, every person is a human being and deserves to be treated like a human. It is like slapping your boss's daughter because you are not satisfied with your pay, while the next day you still want the job.

• < El Zorro > Return favours is like an ultimatum. We (Zimbabwe) are the ones who are suffering so bad and we always seek refuge, they have their reason for deporting the soldier. Please understand that I am not contradicting myself. I guess some secrets expire so they no longer need him.

Full Stop.
