Fake Zim healers arrested in SA

The Zimbabwean "Two months ago, The Zimbabwean published a story exposing how some gullible Zimbabweans in South Africa were falling prey to false prophets who had mushroomed down South.

The police, who confirm having nabbed tens of such imposters from Zimbabwe, Ghana and Nigeria, this week revealed the arrest of at least five more Zimbabweans and a Ugandan, in an ongoing operation initiated by the Pretoria city council."

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."
