My fiancee is in Kwazulu Natal and with all the unrest going on over there, I'm legitimately afraid that she could starve there. Is it even a chance that I could ask to speed up the process?

Normally the expedite has to be on behalf of the petitioner(you).

I'm not too familiar with the K-1 process, but I feel like that would be reason for expedite. I've seen people get expedite approvals because their spouse was depressed or dealing with increased anxiety. Civil unrest should definitely qualify. If I were you I'd ask my local congress person or senator to file the expedite request on your behalf. Best of luck to you both!

Which they cannot do

YMMV

Doesn't hurt to try but approval may be unlikely if it's solely based on the ongoing unrest. You have to be able to include any documentation showing that her life is in danger.

Is she is South Africa or Zimbabwe?

The petitioner has to be the one to request an expedite.  Congress and US senators do not do that.

Also wondering cause we haven't received NOA2 yet. This is not only to expedite the interview, but the NOA2 as well.

Like others have said, it is free to ask.  Keep in mind however, that she is neither the petitioner nor an immediate relative of a USC or LPR, so chances are low.

If you feel it is urgent can she relocate to a third country while you apply for the expedite? Google says Zimbabweans can travel to 59 countries/territories without a visa.

I think exactly the same. Will be the faster solution . Even with the expedited can take some weeks or even months.

Ah ok. I know for IR-1 and CR-1 you can request help from them. I got the form off my senator to assist with an expedite when we filed our I-130, but we got processed quicker than we could have imagined

Politicians cannot request an expedite on anyone's behalf, ever.
