FEMALE RANGERS DENIED UK VISAS
Two pioneering female anti-poaching rangers have been denied UK visas. Nyaradzo Hoto and a colleague were due to accept an award for the anti-poaching team on 3 November.
Zimbabwe International Women Awards (Ziwa) created the Founder’s Award specifically to honour the unit known as Akashinga. In a rejection letter, the Home Office cited Ms Hoto’s and Petronella Chigumbura’s lack of financial assets and property, suggesting they were not genuine visitors and could try to remain in the UK.
“I’m someone from a tough background, so I’m working hard to fill in the potholes of my life,” the star ranger, who featured in a BBC short documentary, explains. “I couldn’t understand the rejection, it’s not fair.”
