The Zimbabwe Enigma – Wake Up Africa

NewEra.com.na: "Thus has come to southern Africa in the SADC region, an enigma that defies all logical solutions, viz. Zimbabwe, or, as old man Vusa Mazulu Mutwa refers to it in African mythology, Zimabje, in reference to an age-old Kingdom of Monomotapa, whose demise left behind the awe-inspiring Zimbabwe Ruins.

The enigma refers to the tough nut that Zimbabwe has become, defying neighbours and the world at large to call her to order, or even to give a word of caution. The authorities in Harare do not even contemplate asking their neighbours for assistance in economic expertise, but rather stoically, like old man Ian Smith himself, stick to their guns and prefer to go it alone."

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."
