Being on TV is enough to get asylum in England
The Big Brother contestant Makosi Musambasi yesterday won her asylum appeal on the grounds that her being on TV has made it unsafe for her to return to Zimbabwe.
The central London asylum and immigration tribunal ruled that the 25-year-old was "in a different position" since the program because of her notoriety.
Ms Musambasi forfeited her permission to work in Britain when she resigned as a cardiac nurse to spend weeks in the Big Brother house. The hearing was told that her sexually charged behaviour on screen could rouse hate mobs in Zimbabwe.
