Great news – Darlin’s flight was cancelled! However, as she is still in detention there is still work to do. Release her from Yarl’s Wood detention centre immediately!
Darlin Abubakhari Kiwanga came to the UK from Tanzania to study in August 2012. She is currently at the end of her second year of a 3 year business degree at the London School of Commerce. On the day she was due to hand in her assignments, she was detained by the Home Office and taken to Yarl’s Wood detention centre. She never got to hand in her work and is currently in detention, waiting for her bail hearing on the 31st of July!
Despite applying to renew her student visa within the given deadline, the Home Office sent her paperwork to the wrong address. The Home Office have made a mistake but instead of admitting it, they are now claiming she is suspected of plagiarism in her English test. This is completely untrue and Darlin has the full support of her college. She has excellent grades and attendance and the college have written a letter in support.
Darlin is in a long-term relationship with her British boyfriend in the UK, and has the support of her brother here. Despite sharing a surname with her brother & father, the Home Office don’t believe she has either a brother or a boyfriend in the UK.
Having worked hard to study in the UK, Darlin only wants to complete her degree. She is happy to return to Tanzania after graduating, as she only has another year left of her degree.
Please support her campaign to finish her degree. Sign her petition and share it online. You can also get in touch with your MP, and contact the Home secretary RT HON Theresa May. Tel: 020 7219 5206 Fax: 020 7219 1145 email email@example.com .
