UK BASED FASHION BLOGGER WHOSE VISA IS EXPIRING STARTS A GOFUND ME ACCOUNT, FACES CRITICISM ONLINE
A Zimbabwean roots fashion blogger, Rutendo Tichiwangani, who has lived in the UK since she was 10 is seeking funds online for fears she might be deported to Zimbabwe.
The UK Home Office has given her until May 6, to re-apply for a visa which it said will be considered on its own merit.
Tichiwangani is however getting a lot of criticism online because she portrays a luxurious lifestyle on her social media pages with designer bags, shoes and clothes.
She has since opened up to Claudia-Liza Armah of @C5News that she gets some of the luxury items by collaborating with companies, adding that some of the items were borrowed from her friends.
She started a gofundme to raise £2300 and has since had to face backlash online from people.
