Leaders want Kenya’s food policy re-looked

KBC News: "Joint political parties are now criticizing the government for failing to act on time to mitigate the effects of drought that has led to more than 3.5 million Kenyans to face starvation.

Led by their vice chair Col. Ben Muema who is also the secretary general of New Ford Kenya, the parties claimed that the government had been alerted by the meteorological department as early as July last year but was reluctant in addressing the situation.

'It is disappointing the government did not make adequate plans to mitigate the effects of the droughts. This has caused untold suffering to our citizens including hunger, starvation and death.'

They regretted that the government continues to import maize at exorbitant prices yet there is food in other parts of the country a move they linked to corruption."

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."
