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.

ANC will return R1 million donation – if donor is proven corrupt

The ANC in KZN have promised to return a R1 million donation, after the donor was arrested under suspicion of tender fraud. A spokesperson for the party said that if the donated money is found to have been obtained through illegal or corrupt means, it would be returned to the donor. The man in question is Gaston Savoi, a Uruguayan national who has been arrested for tender corruption of up to R200 million. The ANC have admitted to receiving the money from Savoi, but said that they'll wait for the court process to run its course before making a decision on the money. The KZN ANC's moral rule book must make for riveting reading: they are quite happy to receive money from a tainted source, as long as the money itself isn't tainted. Read more: SAPA, via TimesLive.
