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.

Somalian militants accuse Kenya of training pro-govt rebels

While allegations fly in Somalia that Ethiopian troops are operating in the failed Horn of Africa state, the militant Islamist al Shabab militia says Kenya is training pro-government militants to fight it and its allies in the southern port town of Kismayo. Al Shabab says the Kenyans are operating three training camps close to the border. This spells more bad news for an already chaotic situation, as AU member states may be operating beyond the mandate of the African Union Mission to Somalia in pursuing their own security interests along the Somali border.
