A member of the Zimbabwe Netball team, the Gems, has reportedly disappeared from the camp in the United Kingdom base hours before the team departs for home tonight.
A source who spoke to The Chronicle on anonymity said:
The guy has disappeared from our base and is nowhere to be found. He was actually a surprise delegate here as he is not even an executive member of the Zimbabwe Netball Association (Zina). He only came by because he is a younger brother to one of the executive committee members. It turns out he just wanted to get a United Kingdom visa using netball and Zina officials knew that. Authorities here have been informed.
Previously, there were reports suggesting that there was a UK based journalist who had persuaded the Gems to seek asylums in the UK.
