Zimbabwe top destination in Africa for British migrants!


Zimbabwe was the only African country in the top 20 destinations for British migrants in 2010 according to the World Bank, but it was not in the top 20 of the United Nations 2013 report. South Africa was. According to figures released in the British House of Lords on Tuesday, Zimbabwe was placed at number 17 in the World Bank 2010 study and had 25 000 British born migrants residing in the country. It was the only African country on the list which was topped by Australia with 1.2 million British migrants. But the United Nations report for 2013 had South Africa with 306 000 British migrants topping the list placed at number 6. Zimbabwe was way down with only 15 561 migrants which would imply a drop of 10 000 in three years. The statement presented to the House of Lords stated that there were known gaps in the estimates produced by both the World Bank and the UN, so the lists of countries drawn from their respective databases may not be complete and may not be directly comparable.
