More Zimbabweans Deported From UK

The United Kingdom (UK) deported nine (9) Zimbabweans last week Thursday, just a year after another group of 50 was deported.

According to The Herald, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom struck an agreement in June last year in which the former committed to treat deportees fairly upon their return.
