NEW COUNTRY GUIDANCE CASE FOR ZIMBABWE CAME INTO FORCE ON 31ST JANUARY, 2013
There is a new country guidance case for Zimbabwe with effect from 31st January, 2013.
This new country guidance case is titled; – “CM (EM country guidance; disclosure) Zimbabwe CG v. Secretary of State for the Home Department”.
Major points to note:
- No general duty on Secretary of State to disclose evidence in asylum cases, only not to mislead by omission
- Overturned Country Guidance in case of EM and Others (Returnees) Zimbabwe CG  UKUT 98 (IAC) reinstated with amendment to account for RT (Zimbabwe)  UKSC 38
- Elections due in 2013, though, and situation is fluid. New country information is always to be taken into account.

BRADFORD BRANCH ENGAGES IN VOLUNTARY COMMUNITY WORK
By Panyika Karimanzira 3rd February, 2013
On Thursday 31st January, 2013 five members of ROHR Zimbabwe’s Bradford branch, namely Lorraine Mudjgiwa, Justice Sibanda, Gladys Jinjika, Hildah Mpofu and Peter Jaure turned up at Bradford Resource Centre, 17 – 21 Chapel Street, Bradford, BD1 5DT to perform community work
This was in response to a call for partnership by, BIASAN – Bradford Immigration and Asylum Seekers Support and Advice Network.
The ROHR Zimbabwe team worked mainly in the kitchen and dining room, cooking and serving food. They served the variety of dishes they prepared, for free, to an appreciating diverse group of mostly needy people from within Bradford. They then washed the dishes and cleaned the whole place after the meals.
The job, which started at 2:00 pm and finished around 7:30 pm, five and a half hours later, left scores of people well fed for the day.
ROHR Zimbabwe’s Bradford branch has committed itself to engaging in more community voluntary work in Bradford in future at the bidding of any section of the society in need of voluntary services.
Speaking at the end of the day, Lorraine Mudjgiwa, the Chairperson of the Bradford branch of ROHR Zimbabwe and co-ordinator of the northern region of ROHR Zimbabwe’s UK Chapter said; -“We are pleased to work in partnership with organisations which deliver invaluable services to the community.”
