Kenyan Mum and kid in the UK win deportation reprieve

Story By Alice McKeegan

A Kenyan Mum and her two-year-old daughter have been granted a last-minute reprieve in their battle against deportation.

Rose Jane Njoki Wanjohi, 43, and Natale were due to leave Britain at the end of last week, but were told that their deportation had been halted pending a review.

Rose claims she fled Kenya in fear of her life after her husband joined an outlawed sect.

The teacher was pregnant with Natale when she arrived in Hyde, Tameside, in December 2006 but her application for asylum was rejected earlier this year.

Her friends in Hyde welcomed the decision but warned that the fight was far from over.

Richard Bushell, 78, said: “We feel it’s a miracle that they are still here because Rose was starting to lose hope.

“We understand that new evidence has come to light which will be considered by immigration officials. We realise there’s a long way to go.”

He said that a couple of London-based friends had staged a demonstration at Heathrow before she was due to be deported. Mr Bushell said: “They handed out leaflets asking passengers not to fasten their seatbelts if Rose and Natale were on board but thankfully they were never faced with that situation.”
The pair are at a detention centre in Bedfordshire while their case is considered.
