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.

Segway firm owner dies in freak accident involving, you guessed it, a Segway

Jimi Heselden, the owner of the Segway company, died on Sunday in a freak accident after he drove the off-road version of the two-wheeled machine off a cliff on his property in North Yorkshire. The UK multimillionaire was inspecting his property when he drove his Segway off a cliff and into a river. Police do not suspect foul play at this moment. Heselden bought the Segway company in December 2009, and had become one of Britain's most generous philanthropists, giving away more than £20 million to charity. Read more: Daily Mail
