Forget the counties

Monitor Online : "THE structures of the counties and sub-counties whose return Buganda has been clamouring for will remain a pipedream, at least for now.
This follows recent legal advice to the government by the Attorney General, Dr. Khiddu Makubuya.

The new communication is contained in an eight-page letter dated December 20, 2007, titled 'Proposed Return of Magombolola and Masaza to the Kabaka of Buganda' signed by Dr Makubuya and addressed to Local Government Minister Kahinda Otafiire."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper : "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October. In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention. Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person. The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
