Help secure Robert's stay in scotland

  • Robert Makutsa has been an integral member of the Glasgow community and Scotland as a whole. We as a community of audio engineers, lighting engineers, technical managers and performing art venues across Scotland, write in support of his urgent consideration to be granted permission to stay in the country which was refused by the home office. Robert was illegally detained by the authorities while he has grounds to challenge their decisions rightly and make valid applications.

  • He is a well-known key member of our society as an audio engineer and has vast skills as a musician. He has served and helped out in most of the music venues in Glasgow. The city of Glasgow also has been his residing place for the past seven years. His partner and immediate family are the only remaining members who are based here in the UK. Why should a government separate him from us?

  • We believe that the authority you carry as our First Minister in Scotland to intercede in his immigration case will secure Robert's leave to remain. A settlement that will ensure that he does not have to face the injustice he has had to endure. He is known to many as a man of good character, hard working, a competent and respected member of the community. We want Robert to stay where he belongs; Scotland is his home.

  • As members of the Performing Arts industry, we recognise the value we bring in our specialised field that helps and contribute in attracting people across the world to visit Scotland. Robert contributes immensely in this industry, and we value his expertise. Our hope is for you to represent our concerns to the relevant authorities regarding a valuable member of our society to continue to peruse his career, and integration with the society that he has made his home.
