The family of murdered schoolgirl Emily Williams are emigrating to the UK because they no longer feel safe in South Africa.
This week, Roger Williams, an executive director and chief financial officer of chemical supplier AECI, announced his intention to resign before the end of the year and move abroad with his family as a “direct consequence of the violent death” of their 12-year-old daughter.
On February 12 Emily was struck in the head by a stray bullet when she, her mother Toni and her 10-year-old sister Sophie stumbled upon an armed robbery at a house in Fairland, north of Joburg, where they had arrived to pick up a neighbour’s child.
