SAUNDERS TELLS PF TO STOP HARASSING MUSICIANS

Political Analyst Dante Saunders says the PF government will reap nothing in pursuing individuals who hold different views and opinions.

And Mr. Saunders has advised government to concentrate on issues of developing the country rather than harassing artistes.

Police have summoned musician Chama Fumba alias Pilato for questioning on Monday over his alleged defamation of President Lungu through his song. Overzealous Lusaka province police commissioner Charity Katanga said Pilato should report at some PF police station in Lusaka. But Pilato is not a Lusaka resident and technically Katanga is overstepping her jurisdiction by summoning residents of other provinces.



But Mr. Sauders says the move is unfair to the society and the artistes citing that it is putting the artistes in a difficult situation.

He points out that the best the PF and its members were going to do if they did not like the song was to ask the members not to play or listen to the song.

Mr. Sauders says it is sad that the PF is harassing innocent artists who want to speak to the people of Zambia through songs.

He further states that the PF should live the musician alone and deal with issues affecting the people of Zambia.

I am not saying it's bad, but if weed is good for you, continue, But for me?

Last sunday (after church). All a nigga did then was tweet, eat, sleep and repeat the routine, boredom was really the trend then.

A friend of mine (name and handle withheld) pinged me so we could hook up, Thank God! So I can leave this house? I was so excited. He lived close to my hood and had been a friend beyond twitter. I got there, we chilled, talked about girls (boys things) I then reminded him that we've been talking since, no MoFaya? (which happens to be my fav) He said he gon take me to a place, we go flex!

We got there, My brother, I first saw smoke, I thought we were going to choose the new pope, till I moved closer... !!! (weed). I feared, but I had been telling this dude about how dope I was when it comes to weed smoking (Lies) :( I had no choice but 2 play along. even the weed seller asked if I could/have ever smoked weed, I furiously told him he was down grading me, so he kept quite..

Everyone collected his rolled weed, we started burning, them pro(s) were taking it straight to the head, I was just pouring out. We all finished our first weed, I felt nothing, (in my mind I was like, 'is this the so hyped weed?) Psheew on to the next.

We all ordered for the second roll this time I wanted to feel it more so I was taking every smoke into my head, the guys were hailing me. Half way fam, something strange happened. Everywhere was moving, I started seeing things in a backward direction I loved the feeling.

Just like how they flashback in Furious 7, I was not there anymore, I saw a white paradise. I saw the beauty! Fam! It was like in heaven. suddenly! Someone patted me 4rm behind, it was Flamez, he smiled at me, He said! Son, u just made me proud. I also saw Zuma drinking tea.

Then to my surprise, guess who else I saw? My dad He was angry! I could tell by the way he looked at me, He was mad at me, He said, 'Son! I didn't raise you like this. Why did you decide to live this lifestyle? I was sad, He gave me a BIG SLAP!! I screamed out to reality, fam it was the weed seller that slapped me. I had been stiff. They were scared. I just smiled slowly.

Suddenly! I pulled off my trouser, because I felt it was disturbing me, They asked what happened? I said I wanted to shit (with a smile) The weed seller knew what was doing me, and said ' don't let him get out' that was when I knew something was wrong.

They gave me many things, ( water, coconut) fam! I was running mad that sunday! Even my nigga was trembling. I told him to come closer, wanted to whisper my twitter accounts password to him just in case if i truly run mad :( I was shaking) The weed seller then asked me if i smoked weed before?' I replied with speed 'Sir, not even paper, I never smoke before'.

He then told them to leave me (that I needed rest and fresh air) I was embarrassed, They said I was just looking like when they display apprehended thieves on channels TV. I was half naked, I regretted my life.

Am not saying it's bad, but if weed is good for you, continue, But for me?

Oscar Pistorius gets aprivate bath

By Oscar Pistorius gets a
private bath
Debora Patta and Johan Eybers

Prison authorities are doing their utmost to ensure Oscar Pistorius is well cared for in jail, and are even building him his own bath.

Sources with access to the area of Pretoria's Kgosi Mampuru Prison, in which Pistorius is jailed, have told City Press authorities are building a special bath for him because it is difficult for him to shower.

"Because of his disability, it is easier for him to take a bath where he is away from the rest of the prisoners," said a source.

Another source told City Press the bath would be available to other inmates in future, but right now it is intended for Pistorius' sole use.

Until now, inmates only had access to showers.

Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine's Day last year. He could qualify for parole after just 10 months.

But he might get to use the bath for longer than that because state prosecutor Gerrie Nel applied this week for leave to appeal both his conviction – Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide and not of murder, which the state strongly opposes – as well as his sentence.

Two weeks ago, City Press reported that Pistorius was broke after having racked up a R17.5 million legal bill, about R10 million of which is still unpaid.

Pistorius has been moved to the B section of the prison near the hospital wing, where he has his own private cell. Among his neighbours is Czech fugitive Radovan Krejčíř, whom City Press understands has his own television in his cell that is hooked up to DStv.

Krejčíř also celebrated his birthday in prison this week and he shared his birthday cake, which was delivered to the prison, with the other prisoners in the wing, including Pistorius.

Another source with regular access to the prison confirmed that a new bathroom is being built for Pistorius "so that Oscar does not have to walk past a number of prisoners to get to the toilet".

Pistorius was previously housed in the prison's EF section, but had to be moved after Etienne Kabila – who is awaiting trial for plotting to overthrow his half brother, Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila – allegedly flooded the cells.

City Press understands that Kabila had an argument with the prison wardens, which resulted in him smashing a television set. Later, he allegedly put a plug into a basin and left the tap running – flooding the entire section.

Pistorius then had to be moved because it was feared he might slip and hurt himself.

"It was so badly flooded that inmates were almost swimming, and this was seen as too dangerous for Oscar," said the source.

The B section single cells are a lot smaller than those of EF and a lot less comfortable. The security in that section is also said to be a lot tighter.

Pistorius and the awaiting-trial prisoners with whom he is being kept are to be moved back to their original cells as soon as the flood damage has been repaired.

Pistorius, who does not mingle with other prisoners, even at meal times, has become extremely depressed in jail.

His fellow inmates, sources say, have even been encouraging him to see the prison counsellor.

They have told him "he would not be regarded as a sissie" if he asked for help.

"He has even cried on occasion," said the source. "He really is battling with prison."

Sources say that Pistorius is apparently frustrated by the fact that everyone around him is so negative.

"Other inmates and wardens feel sorry for him or ashamed of his fall from grace and keep burdening him with their feelings," the source said.

"He is so tired of everybody wanting something from him and just wants to think positively and believe in God that his ordeal will soon be over."

City Press was also told that Afrikaans-speaking inmates were looking out for him.

"They have his back, he won't get into any trouble as he is being protected," he said.

Correctional services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela denied that the prison was having a bath installed exclusively for Pistorius.

"The planning and actual work to construct the bathroom and general maintenance started a long time ago. It was due for completion on May 31, many months before Oscar was even found guilty. He is using the communal bathroom."

Wolela said awaiting-trial prisoners "have privileges, which include access to TVs, but not to DStv. Krejčíř has access to TV but no DStv".

Wolela added Kabila used an "old trick by inmates to open taps for water to overflow. He was reprimanded for this and is currently with the others".

Why wasn't Oscar Pistorius convicted of murder?

Oscar Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide by Judge Thokozile Masipa after being cleared of murdering Reeva Steenkamp.

The prosecution accused Pistorius of premeditated murder, claiming he had deliberately shot his girlfriend Steenkamp after an argument on Valentine's Day last year.

However, Judge Masipa told the court that the state had failed to prove "beyond reasonable doubt" that Pistorius is guilty of premeditated murder. "There are just not enough facts to support such a finding," she said.

Masipa said the evidence the state offered on the charge was "purely circumstantial".

Based on the objective facts, such as phone records, she accepted the defence's timeline of events that the shots were fired at around 3.12am. This meant that some of the state witnesses who claimed they heard a woman screaming after the time Steenkamp was shot must have been "genuinely mistaken", she said.

The judge also said that the WhatsApp messages between Pistorius and Steenkamp did not "prove anything" and the evidence suggesting Steenkamp had eaten two hours before she died was "inconclusive".

Masipa then turned to the lesser charge of murder. She said there was "no doubt" that when Pistorius fired shots at the door he "acted unlawfully".

However, she said that the evidence does not support the state's case that this was "murder dolus eventualis", a legal term for when the perpetrator foresees the possibility of his action causing death and persists regardless.

Masipa accepted that Pistorius believed Steenkamp was in the bedroom, noting that this part of his account had remained consistent since the moments after the shooting. It is "highly improbable the accused would have made this up so quickly", she said.

She described Pistorius as a "very poor" and "evasive" witness, but said it did not mean he was necessarily guilty.

"Clearly he did not subjectively foresee this as a possibility that he would kill the person behind the door – let alone the deceased – as he thought she was in the bedroom," she said.

Legal experts suggested that the state might be able to appeal the murder ruling. Masipa explained why Pistorius did not foresee that he would kill Steenkamp, but did not "explain convincingly" why she believed he did not foresee that he would have killed the perceived intruder, says Pierre De Vos, who teaches constitutional law at the University of Cape Town.

Writing in South Africa's Daily Maverick, De Vos says: "Given all the evidence presented in court about Pistorius's knowledge of guns and what the bullets he used would do to a person, it is unlikely in the extreme that Pistorius did not foresee that the person behind the door (who he might have thought was an intruder) would be killed."

Masipa offered a legal explanation as to why she could only convict Pistorius on culpable homicide rather than murder.

A "reasonable" person with Pistorius's disabilities would have foreseen that shooting into the door may have killed the person inside, she said.However, South African law warns against automatically assuming that because a perpetrator "should have" foreseen the consequences of his actions that he actually did.

She pointed to JM Burchell's General Principles of Criminal Law, which states that "the courts have warned against any tendency to draw the inference of objective foresight too easily".

Following previous cases, the courts have been told to "guard against proceeding too readily from 'ought to have foreseen' to 'must have foreseen'".

The onus was on the state to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Pistorius foresaw the fatal consequences of his actions when he shot at the door. Masipa said the prosecution failed to do so.

South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority has filed an appeal against the verdict and sentence given to Oscar Pistorius.

Prosecutors were not happy with the culpable homicide conviction and five-year prison sentence handed down by Judge Thokozile Masipa.

"Today, we announce that the NPA filed the application for leave to appeal both the conviction and sentence," it said today in a statement. "The appeal on conviction is based on the question of law."

Pistorius began his prison term on 21 October and will be eligible for release after ten months to complete his sentence under house arrest.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel had argued that only ten years' imprisonment would satisfy the public.

Some legal experts believe Judge Masipa erred in her interpretation of "murder dolus eventualis", a legal term for when the perpetrator foresees the possibility of his action causing death and persists regardless.

Masipa accepted that a "reasonable" person would have foreseen that shooting into the door of a small toilet cubicle may have killed the person inside. However, she said South African law warns against automatically assuming that because a perpetrator "should have" foreseen the consequences of his actions that he actually did.

The onus was on the state to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Pistorius foresaw the fatal consequences of his actions when he shot at the door, but the judge said the prosecution failed to do so.

A date for the appeal hearing has not yet been set.

June Steenkamp, Reeva's mother, said the family had been "devastated" when Masipa ruled out murder and pre-meditated murder, but said that after sentencing they felt that justice had been done. "We were happy with the sentence – five years is sufficient," she said.

She has since said that she believes the judge made a mistake in failing to convict Pistorius of murder (see below).

Oscar Pistorius: judge made a 'mistake', says Reeva's mother

3 November
The mother of Reeva Steenkamp believes the judge who convicted Oscar Pistorius of culpable homicide "made a mistake".

June Steenkamp has spoken out in a number of interviews since Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison for shooting Reeva on Valentine's Day last year.

Prosecutors announced last week that they will appeal against both the conviction and sentence handed down by Judge Thokozile Masipa.

"I had a lot of trust in her," June said of Judge Masipa in an interview with The Guardian's David Smith. "But I think she did make a mistake."

The Steenkamp family was said to be "devastated" that Judge Masipa ruled out murder and pre-meditated murder, but felt that justice had been done after Pistorius was sentenced to five years in jail.

June said she still did not feel any sense of closure, despite the trial coming to an end last month.

"I've actually been feeling much worse than at the beginning. It's like a realisation that she's not there any more. I sat there every day and I always had things to do, and now it's crystal clear that she's never coming back," said June.

Both she and her husband Barry are tortured by the thought of their daughter's final moments, she said. Reeva was hit in the hip, arm and head through the closed toilet door.

"Imagine what she went through in that toilet, petrified, waiting for God to save her," said June. "That's the worst part. Barry and I both have nightmares and it's always about that, because we always protected her."

June described her daughter as a "perfect child and lovable", saying she could not remember one argument that they had because she was so good.
"We would have loved to have had a little grandchild from her," she tells The Guardian. "We'd love to have had a wedding; her father would love to have taken her down the aisle. And all the great things she was going to do. She could have changed the world. She could have changed South Africa, the way she was going. She had a voice."

Oscar Pistorius: Reeva Steenkamp 'had decided to leave' athlete

27 October
Reeva Steenkamp's mother believes her daughter was ready to leave Oscar Pistorius when she was shot dead on Valentine's Day last year.

June Steenkamp, who is publishing a book about her daughter next week, claims that Reeva and Pistorius had not yet slept together and that their relationship was coming to an end.
In an extract from Reeva: A Mother's Story, she says her daughter had "nagging doubts" about their compatibility.

"She had confided to me that she hadn't slept with him," writes June. "They'd shared a bed, but she was scared to take the relationship to that level... She wouldn't want to sleep with Oscar if she wasn't sure. I believe their relationship was coming to an end. In her heart of hearts, she didn't think it was making either of them happy."
June describes Pistorius as "arrogant", "possessive" and "trigger happy" in the book. "It was Reeva's bad luck that she met him, because sooner or later he would have killed someone," she claims.

Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison for culpable homicide last week. Judge Thokozile Masipa accepted the defence's timeline of events and said Pistorius's version of events – in which he claims he mistook Reeva for a dangerous intruder – could be "reasonably, possibly true".
But June does not accept Pistorius's story. "He said pulling the trigger was 'an accident'. What? Four times an accident?" she says. "He said Reeva did not scream, but she would definitely have screamed. I know my daughter and she was very vocal."

June speculates that one of them might have received a Valentine's Day message from another admirer and that might have sparked a row – although no such message was brought up in court. She believes Pistorius shot Reeva in a jealous rage and then shot three more bullets to ensure she could not tell the world what really happened.

"Her clothes were packed. There is no doubt in our minds: she had decided to leave Oscar that night," she claims.
The Timeshas paid to serialise June's book and also interviewedher following Pistorius's sentencing. Here is what else she had to say:

Reaction to verdict

The Steenkamp family were "devastated" when Judge Masipa first ruled out murder and pre-meditated murder. "I felt very, very disappointed. Heartsore, actually, and exhausted," says June. "It was the worst of double whammies – to lose our daughter and then to see her violent death officially deemed an accident."

Reaction to sentence

June says she felt "so much better" after the sentencing and believed that Judge Masipa gave a "balanced consideration" of the mitigating and aggravating arguments. "We feel justice has been done. We were happy with the sentence – five years is sufficient," she says. However, she has noted that no sentence could ever provide closure for her family. "Nothing can – unless someone can magic Reeva back."
Feelings towards Oscar
June says she has forgiven Pistorius "in the Christian sense" and has "no feelings" towards him, good or bad. "We just want the truth and he is the only person who can fill in the missing blanks of what happened that night," she says. Both June and her husband Barry would like to sit down in private with the athlete. June says she has "no hate" in her heart for Pistorius's family either and feels sympathy for what they have gone through.

Oscar Pistorius: prosecution has 'appetite' to appeal

22 October

South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority is considering whether to appeal against Oscar Pistorius's culpable homicide verdict.
The athlete was yesterday sentenced to five years in prison for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year and has spent his first night in Kgosi Mampuru prison in Pretoria.

Pistorius's defence lawyers suggested that he could serve just ten months in jail, a period only slightly longer than the duration of his trial.
His family told reporters that he did not intend to lodge an appeal and would "embrace" the opportunity to "pay back to society".

The NPA, however, has indicated that it has an "appetite" to appeal. "We have always stated first and foremost that we were disappointed with the conviction," NPA spokesman Nathi Mncube told reporters. "But we do find solace in the fact the accused will serve some time in prison."

Both sides have the opportunity to appeal within 14 days. Mncube said the NPA would use this time to consider whether the facts and the law allowed them to appeal, and suggested that the state would appeal the verdict, but not the sentence.

"It is not a straightforward matter because there is law we have to consider, to ensure that if we do take the matter to appeal, we are able to support the decision. But hopefully we will able to do so," he said.
Some South African lawyers questioned whether Judge Thokozile Masipa had erred in clearing Pistorius of murderlast month.

In explaining why she could only convict him on culpable homicide, Masipa acknowledged that a "reasonable" person with Pistorius's disabilities would have foreseen that shooting into the door may have killed the person inside. However, she said South African law warns against automatically assuming that because a perpetrator "should have" foreseen the consequences of his actions that he actually did.

She said that the prosecution had failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Pistorius foresaw the fatal consequences of his actions when he shot at the door, meaning she could not convict him on a murder charge.

Oscar Pistorius: is five years in prison justice for Reeva?

21 October

After an emotional seven-month trial, Oscar Pistorius was calm and composed today as Judge Thokozile Masipa sentenced him to five years in prison – but outside the courtroom, reactions were more extreme.

The defence team said it expects the athlete to serve only ten months behind bars and the remainder under house arrest, while the prosecution believe he will have to serve at least 20 months.
The prospect of Pistorius leaving jail within a year provoked outrage on Twitter, with the hashtag #Nojustice trending worldwide.

Sky Newsreporter Robert Nisbet said the overwhelming reaction on the streets of Pretoria was also negative. "He took the soul of another person. How can that be right?" one man said outside the court.

But Reeva Steenkamp's mother June says justice has been served. She told reporters "it doesn't matter" that Pistorius could be out of prison in ten months. "He's going to pay something," she said.

Pistorius's family also said they were satisfied with the sentence and added that the athlete will "embrace this opportunity to pay back to society".
Professor Stephen Tuson, of Wits School of Law, told News24it would be "inadvisable" for Pistorius to appeal against the sentence as he "got off lightly" for culpable homicide.
Masipa sentenced the athlete to a maximum imprisonment of five years for killing Reeva and a concurrent three-year prison sentence, suspended for five years, for discharging a firearm in a Johannesburg restaurant in January 2013.

In The Independent, Chris Maume says Masipa "might have shown mercy, but she has delivered perfect justice". A non-custodial sentence would have "sent the wrong message" that if you are famous enough, you can get away with manslaughter, while a longer hail sentence "would have felt like grandstanding", says Maume.
But in The Guardian, Simon Jenkins thinks Pistorius should not be going to jail at all. Masipa's argument was "meticulously reasoned", says Jenkins, but "beyond the cause of consistency, imprisoning Pistorius can serve no purpose".

He describes imprisonment as "brutalism" and says no one will be more or less deterred by the length of his sentence.

"Finding why he behaved as he did, and working to prevent others doing likewise, would be the most useful outcome of his crime. That is unlikely to happen in a prison."
