Joy for two whizz kids

Sowetan "Malebelo Maphutha’s dream of becoming a scientist and making the world a better place is finally coming true.
She and Vuyo Funde, another Crawford College, Johannesburg, matriculant, have just joined the best after each notched up seven distinctions in this year’s matric examinations.
Vuyo, 18, says he wants to be an actuarial scientist. He admits that attending a private school yielded positive results for him because of the individual attention tailored to his needs.
After a “relatively easy year”, the 18-year-old Malebelo says she is happy that she has passed her matric though she had expected it.
“Matric was not that difficult for me, I really had fun,” Malebelo says. “ What I thought was hard and stressful was Grade 11 – but I got through it.”"

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."
