As Banda does us proud, Sata starts with alarms

| Zambian Watchdog: "A week is a long time in politics, so they say. Alas, we have Zambia to show for it. While we were all mesmerised by the gracious withdrawal from state power of Zambian President Rupiah Banda, little did we know that incoming President, Michael Sata, would wait for only one week before he started to unleash his pent-up anger on the MMD. I guess the title “King Cobra” wasn’t given to him for nothing."

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."
