Mugabe needs help: Makoni

 Zimbabwe Situation: "HARARE – Simba Makoni, the Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn leader has said President Robert Mugabe must accept that he needs help from other political leaders to find lasting solutions to Zimbabwe’s intractable economic and social problems.

Makoni, who blamed Mugabe and his cronies for creating current economic problems which the former Finance minister attributed to ill-thought decisions,  said it would be extremely difficult for Zanu PF on its own to solve problems it wrought in the first place."

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."
