We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Zimbabwe’s Tsvangirai in line for Nobel Peace Prize

Along with the strange choices of US and French presidents Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy, Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is in the running to win the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009. Other candidates include Colombian Piedad Cordoba and Afghan rights activist Sima Samar. Norway's Nobel Committee wants a peace maker or rights activist engaged in a current conflict. A Maltese-based bookmaker lists Tsvangirai at 6-to-1. Odd that the good and the great are bet upon like racehorses, even before anyone knows whether it is a two-horse race. The winner will be announced on 9 October.
