The question remains whether Brian White will be now produced in the courts of laws to answer rape charges or not. The ailing socialite former tycoon Brian Kirumira, aka Bryan White, is in trouble as the Bryan White Foundation license has been deregistered. The development of cancelling out the Foundation license follows the owner’s recent sexual abuse allegations that he is involved in.
