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.

Rwanda outraged by UN report

Rwanda said that it welcomed UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon's visit to the country, but officials were outraged by a UN report that accused Rwandan soldiers of genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Ban is in the country to talk to officials about the report, which has not yet been released to allow the affected countries time to comment on it. The report accuses Rwandan Tutsi commanders and their rebel allies of carrying out genocide missions against Hutus living in the DRC. Rwanda's foreign minister, who is meeting Ban today, said that if the report were published, his country would withdraw their troops supporting UN peace-keeping missions in Sudan.
