An asylum seeker who has lived in this country for 17years after fleeing brutality in Zimbabwe needs a government approved DNA test to prove his parenthood of his 5 year and 10 year old daughters who were born in this country to gain his right to stay in this country and continue looking after her. He has no recourse to public funds and has been destitute for some time. A He is member of Leicester Civil Rights Movement, a long-standing member of Movement for Democratic Change Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Association for whom he has raised funds and Zimbabwe choir. Please support him if you cannot donate yourself share widely. Chris LCRM
The political situation in Zimbabwe was terrible. The opposition the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) were being beaten or tortured by Zanu PF. I was under threat because I was in the MDC. I was a teacher. Teachers and pupils were forced to be “For or against you” Everybody was under threat. I was beaten at my house for being an MDC supporter. My father sponsored me to come here. The MDC was formed in 1999 and I came here in 2007. Things were very bad at the time. The Home Office has not accepted my case. My wife left me in 2008 and went back to Zimbabwe look after the children as her mother who was caring for them had a stroke. She formed a relationship with another man. I met a woman in this country and we have two children. The Home Office only gave me a card to allow me to work for one year. It was terminated when I lost my case. I get nothing from NASS. I am still a member of the MDC. If I return to Zimbabwe I will be persecuted because ZANU PF are still in power. There has only been a change of leader in Zimbabwe
