    Ex-S. African Deputy President Zuma Charged With Rape
Jacob Zuma Jacob Zuma, the former deputy president of South Africa who is already facing trial for corruption, was today charged with rape.Although Mr Zuma will remain No. 2 in the governing African National Congress, the charge is likely to end any lingering hope that he could succeed Thabo Mbeki as president when he steps down after two terms in 2009. Mr Mbeki fired Mr Zuma in June after a court found his financial adviser guilty of corruption, and he was charged on two counts of corruption shortly afterwards. Newspaper reports surfaced last month that Mr Zuma had raped an HIV-positive AIDS activist who is an old family friend, and who contracted HIV after being raped earlier in her life. - (Africa)

    One of Zimbabwe's last remaining white farmers was strangled and burned to death in an attack inside his home yesterday
Don Stewart, 68, was set upon shortly before dawn in the bedroom of his tightly-guarded homestead near Norton, 25 miles west of Harare. He was one of the last 300 white farmers left in Zimbabwe. There were 4,000 five years ago. Police insisted that Mr Stewart's murder was the work of common criminals and had "no political motive". Nothing besides a hunting rifle was stolen. His assailants were unable to penetrate the barred windows and reinforced doors of his homestead on Ingwerati dairy farm.  Instead, they entered through the roof and strangled Mr Stewart in his bed. Then they covered him with a mattress, doused it in petrol and set him alight. Mr Stewart, who was born in Zimbabwe, lived alone. After the strain of five years of continuous violence against white farmers, his wife, Margaret, had moved to Britain. - (José María) - (Africa) - (Burned Alive!)
