People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

Recommended Posts

Mwepu's got a very long history section on his Wiki, beyond his short career would suggest, because of a Wiki editorial war a few years back about his country of birth. Apparently him being born in Lusaka, trained in Zambia, and playing for the Zambian national team wasn't enough proof for some Wiki editors that he wasn't Kenyan instead!

Directed and wrote "The Bitch" starring Joan Collins. Other credits include "Richard III", "Our Man in Havana" and the Oscar-winning "Tom Jones".

Yes, I saw it on Facebook several days ago and sent it to someone who is working on an obituary for him.

An edit today to the wiki page of Italian journalist Sergio Borelli (b. 1923) says he died back on 17 Sep 2021.

 

Somewhat surprising given his prominence. 


 @drol ?

EDIT: Never mind. Found an obituary via the Facebook page for his documentary.

Ah, 85 the product of two prime numbers (5 and 17) as William will confirm. Oh, he’s dead.
