Invest in tourism, Levy tells Zambians

Times of Zambia: "PRESIDENT Mwanawasa has challenged Zambians to invest in tourism and discard the syndrome of viewing the sector as a preserve for foreign investors.

He said the tourism sector was the fastest growing industry and a major driving force in the world economy and stressed that its investment should not be left to foreigners
The president who is on a 10-day private visit with his family to Mfuwe, was speaking yesterday when he officially opened the Mushroom Lodge and Presidential House in the Luangwa South National Park."

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."
