Zambians toast Sata’s victory

Times of Zambia "ZAMBIANS across the country have continued to toast the victory of President Michael Sata in the September 20 tripartite elections.

Ndola Patriotic Front (PF) supporters and residents broke into wild celebrations after President Sata was officially declared winner of the presidential elections.

The residents left their houses to celebrate on the streets soon after Chief Justice Ernest Sakala, who was the returning officer for the presidential elections, declared Mr Sata the duly elected president yesterday.

The celebrations continued late into the afternoon as the residents and supporters matched around town while they also made mock funeral processions of the former ruling party, the MMD which was the PF’s closest opponent."

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."
