It’s good news for Gamu Nhengu and her family members.. well at least for now!

Former X Factor singer Gamu Nhengu and her family have won the latest round of their legal fight to remain in the UK.
The Home Office had turned down a visa renewal application by the teenage singer’s mother, but reversed that decision at a hearing in Glasgow.
The 18-year-old and her family are originally from Zimbabwe but have lived in Clackmannanshire for several years.
Officials refused their visa renewal over procedural problems, but said they would now make a fresh decision.
Speaking after the hearing, the family’s lawyer, Frances Farrell, said: “The family are pleased that the Home Office have withdrawn their decisions and decided to reconsider my clients’ cases.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.”
The solicitor said she hoped a fresh decision would be made within weeks, rather than months. Read more…..
The Home Office just seems to be playing games with this family. I just hope it works out for them in the end.
