Allow GAMU BACK INTO SCOTLAND
This Is a petition to bring back Gamu Nhengu and her family back into the uk Scottish X Factor star Gamu Nhengu, whose axing from the show caused a storm of protest among viewers, has been told to leave the UK. The UK Border Agency confirmed that the teenager must now return to her native Zimbabwe. Miss Nhengu, 18, was allowed to stay in the country as a dependant while her mother, Nokuthula Ngazana, studied at university. The family arrived in Scotland from Zimbabwe five years ago and settled in Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire. But her mother's visa has now expired and the family's application to remain has been rejected as they did not meet Home Office criteria. The family has now been told to leave the UK voluntarily or face deportation. The family do not have a right to appeal and the singer cannot apply separately to remain in this country. Gamu was kicked off the show by judge Cheryl Cole at the weekend despite being a huge hit with fans. So far, more than 210,000 fans have signed up to a Facebook page called Gamu Should Have Got Through, protesting against the decision to leave her out of the final 12. At least one of the rejected contestants will be given a lifeline at the weekend as a "wild card" on Saturday night's programme, although it is thought Miss Nhengu will not be among them. A spokesman for the Home Office said the decision to axe the student from The X Factor was the business of the television show. He could not say whether Cole had come to her conclusion after talks between immigration officials and the programme's bosses. A UK Border Agency spokesman said: "The applications made by Ms Ngazana and her family were considered in line with the published immigration rules. "Ms Ngazana's application was refused as it did not meet all of the conditions for approval. Her family, who had applied as her dependants, were therefore also refused. "Where people are found to have no right to remain in the UK, we expect them to leave voluntarily." Officials from the Home Office have been speaking to Ms Nhengu and her family about leaving the UK. X Factor bosses denied suggestions that Cole had been influenced by visa issues. A show spokeswoman said: "Gamu's visa being processed was not the reason that she didn't make the final 12."
