On 21 November 2017, Robert Gabriel Mugabe resigned as the President of Zimbabwe, after maintaining a grip on power for 37 years.
Following that resignation , the burning questions relating to the future political democratic processes and upholding of the rule of law in Zimbabwe are matters evidently up for debate, perhaps to become clearer as time unfolds.
For now the biting question for UK based asylum claimants is this: how does Mugabe’s downfall impact upon UK based Zimbabwean asylum claimants and failed asylum seekers?
The next time that the Upper Tribunal fixates on disturbing settled EEA law, perhaps they should consider taking a very long pause so as to avoid reaching decisions which potentially result in injustice.
The outcome in Kamki v The Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWCA Civ 1715 (31 October 2017) emphasises among other issues, that it may prove fatal to an appeal if a deportee does not accept responsibility in relation to the offences in which he is found guilty and consequently undertakes no relevant offender courses in prison or other work to address his offending behaviour. Such issues, in an EEA deportation appeal go to the root of the matter as regards whether the Secretary of State or Tribunal may find on that basis that the personal conduct of the person concerned represents a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat affecting one of the fundamental interests of society.
