Mugabe puts a spin on a ‘New Sunday Times’

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and Namibian President Sam Nujoma have joined hands to start a new regional newspaper called the 'New Sunday Times' to "counter the threat from the global media to African values". The 'New Sunday Times' will, according to reports, be jointly published by the state-run Zimbabwe Newspapers Group (Zimpapers) and Namibia's New Era Publishing Corporation, a company wholly owned by Nujoma's government. The more diplomatic critics quoted have called the project "unsustainable". -- First published in the Cape Times, 6-5-2004
