South Africa v West Indies, a racing certainty for cricket

Sportingo: "The way I see it, as an African, South African cricket is in a no-lose situation. Cricket as an elitist sport of the white minority is blessed with the presence of an all-black West Indian squad. Witnessing the interest in this series, I am convinced that many young black Africans, although still Proteas supporters (my impression amongst the autograph-seeking hordes) have not missed the significance of this wonderful black role-modelling in cricket.
Having the West Indians here, in Africa, is all good. Win or lose, cricket in South Africa can only win."

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."
