A tale of two cities: Peaceful Hargesia, violent Mogadishu

The East African "One inescapable fact about the Horn of Africa is that Hargeisa, the capital of the self-declared Republic of Somaliland, is peaceful, while its sister city Mogadishu, the constitutional capital of Somalia, is in a state of permanent anarchy.
It is no surprise then that lately, American academicians and political writers have taken to writing endless analyses as to why such a reality prevails in the Horn of Africa region, expressing their opinions as to what they would like to see happen."

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."
