Man who saved children from house fire faces deportation from the UK – Telegraph.co.uk

Mr Chilowa, who came to the UK in 2001, says he is facing deportation back to Zimbabwe, where he says he fears for his safety.

“It is a slap in the face,” he said.

“Friends said, ‘When are you going to see the Queen? When are you going to be knighted?

“I did a great job but now what they are saying is, ‘Get lost.”‘

Three girls and one boy aged between 10 and 17 and the youngster’s uncle were taken to hospital after the fire in the early hours of February 10.

Grandparents Mohammed Awad, 56, and Hasma Awad, 47, died at the scene.

Mr Chilowa ran to the house in his bare feet and was alerted by an older sister who had jumped from an upstairs window, that her younger brother and sisters were trapped inside.
