UK Government must Empower undocumented Zimbabweans with SkillsTraining b4 deportation

After the cosmetic government change that took place in Zimbabwe, the UK government has stepped up deportation of undocumented Zimbabweans.  Most of these people have spent really horrendous years living in abjact poverty in a land of plenty.  Now that there is a good government in Zimbabwe, according to UKVisas,the U.K. government wants these pests to pack and go as early as yesterday.  However after spending  many years if not decades of hopelessness and destitution one can imagine the kind of reception and quality of life that awaits them in the New Zimbabwe.  A lot of these have actually deskilled let alone getting too old to start life from scratch.
The prospect of sliding deeper into poverty now scares these people more than the dreaded CIO's.. These people need someone to throw them a lifeline to breathe some life in the few years that they may survive.  Many need training to re-equip themselves with useful skills that they will surely find useful back home. Meaningful packages by way of capital injections would not only be appealing to many but will encourage thousands for voluntary return

Let us therefore call upon the UK government to practice what it preaches by word of mouth that they wish to see Zimbabwe back to its glorious days.  The UK government should STOP deporting destitute failed asylum seekers but empower them before they deport them.  They should allow failed Zimbabwean asylum seekers access to education and training before they kick them out.
