Gamu Nhengu who failed to make it in the X Factor contest today claimed she would face a firing squad if she is deported to Zimbabwe. The 18-year-old singer who now lives in Scotland is facing deportation after her mother wrongly claimed state benefits. “I’ve been in the public eye now and people there know I’ve fled Mugabe’s regime. They will punish us if we go back. They’re going to know where we are. There’s a firing squad waiting for us there and they’re putting me in front of it.” Gamu left Zimbabwe when she was only 10.
