Tie your dog - BDP man tells ANC

Mmegi Online "FRANCISTOWN: Julius Malema is a dog that should be kept tightly on the leash, the chairman of the Botswana Democratic Party's (BDP) Francistown Region, Botho Ntirang, said over the weekend."
Ntirang, who was addressing a rally at the Tatitown freedom square on Saturday, said he was prepared to die in defence of Botswana against "prematurely-aged Malema".

"Malema is a loose canon," he said. "He insults everybody, including his own president, Jacob Zuma. No wonder he looks older than his age."

He appealed to the ANC "to keep its dog on the leash". Malema stirred controversy last week when he branded the ruling BDP a puppet government that was ever-bending to the whims of imperialists and a security threat to the African continent.

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."
