Unfortunately, Mr William has joined the late Mr William senior, when he slipped in the shower (banned) and perished.

A sad day.

How sad, his father was "poisoned to dearth"!

I am not impressed with you guys. In time of desperate need someone wants your help and you don't do anything?

I am going to Close Up tonight to talk about Samson William. TV1 called me this morning to ask about this person and I am ready to give my full support through a 24 hour TV campaign on Halloween Day to collect funds to help this person...
