  • What a tragedy in our community. Wiwith father son relationship I could have never imagined this. I hope the African community will realize that there is no way to run from the law in this country. I want to stay at that he is innocent till proven guilty, at the same time with the reports and suspicion and allegation leveled against him, it’s hard not to fault him. Thank you for the update please keep up the hard work
