Kaseke Faces Eviction

The Zimbabwe Independent ZIMBABWE Tourism Authority (ZTA) boss Karikoga Kaseke faces eviction from a house he was leasing in the capital after a Harare civil court ordered him to vacate the premises.

Magistrate Never Katiyo recently ruled that Kaseke must leave the house in Sentosa, Mabelreign, in Harare even though his appeal to the High Court against a ruling of the Rent Board ordering him to vacate the property was still pending.
According to court records seen by the Zimbabwe Independent this week, Kaseke was renting the house from Zulekha Kara and was given three-months notice on October 26 2007 to vacate the premises. The notice commenced on November 1 2007.
"Despite being given the notice the respondent (Kaseke) failed to vacate the premises and thereafter I approached the Rent Board to obtain a certificate of ejectment," Kara said in his application seeking an order to compel the ZTA boss to leave his house.

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."
