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.

French arrest nuclear scientist over al-Qaeda links

A French physicist of Algerian descent, who works at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Cern), has been arrested on suspicion of links to al-Qaeda. Anti-terrorism magistrates in Paris have filed preliminary charges after he was said to have exchanged Internet messages with people known to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb region of Algeria, in which he expressed a desire to carry out attacks. Officials say the suspect had not been at work for almost a year because he was ill. His brother, also arrested, was released without being charged.
