so here's an interesting comparison of the world's prison populations: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/uk/06/prisons/html/nn2page1.stm check out kenya's 343% jail occupancy level. in other amazing african news, Jacob Zuma, South Africa's ex-deputy president and head of the National AIDS Council, is on trial for rape. Aware that the defendant was HIV-Positive, Zuma stated that the two had consensual, unprotected sex, and that he showered afterwards to "minimize the risk of contracting the disease." wow. the head of the National AIDS Council believes showering to be an effective defense. lots of things need to change in Africa, and this kind of ignorance is one of them.
