Mujuru haunts ZANU-PF

The Financial Gazette "AS conspiracy theories continue to swirl around the death of Solomon Mujuru, a dark cloud of mistrusts and suspicions never experienced before since ZANU-PF's formation in 1963 has engulfed the party as both allies and foes of the late commander attempt to unravel circumstances around the retired army general's gruesome death at his farm on Tuesday last week.
Not even the late general's wife, Vice-President Joice Mujuru's appeal for calm last week could steady the nerves in the fractious ZANU-PF, which is trying to come to terms with the death of a man who was quite instrumental in shaping the direction of the party, before and after the country's independence in 1980."

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."
