The Mail & Guardian Online – Daily Mail is South Africa’s oldest quality news source on the web and Africa’s first online newspaper.
The Weekly Mail was started in mid-1985 by a group of journalists who had been recently retrenched from the Rand Daily Mail and the Sunday Express, which had both closed down. The paper was run on a shoestring, but made possible by the revolution in “desktop publishing” of the 1980s. In the mid-1990s, a deal with the British paper The Guardian integrated that publication’s international content with the Mail’s South African coverage, beginning the process that would see The Weekly Mail become the Mail & Guardian.
