Stop Jimmy Thoronka From Deportation

This petition had 5,089 supporters


Jimmy Thoronka a talented African sprinter, has been forced to live rough in London for a period of 6 months, after the end of the commonwealth games (in which he competed). Now, under the immigration policy of the British government, he is being forced to return to Sierra Leone, the epicentre of the recent Ebola virus that killed his family, among many others in the nation. This petition requests that Jimmy is allowed to stay in the country, to hone his athletic ability, rather than being condemned to a future of deprivation and possibility of contracting ebola.
