Ministers demand VP to resign or face impeachment 

Malawi Nyasa Times "Ministers in President Bingu wa Mutharika cabinet have asked Malawi’s Vice President Joyce Banda to resign from her position for “fighting her own government” or risk being impeached in parliament when it sits in November.

According to the constitution, the vice president cannot be removed but can resign voluntary or be impeached by parliament.

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has absolute majority in parliament and can possibly get the numbers to indict the vice president for impeachment proceedings."

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."
