Newspaper published daily in Johannesburg, renowned today for being the first newspaper to openly oppose apartheid and contribute to its downfall.
The Rand Daily Mail pioneered popular journalism in South Africa, until it was controversially closed in 1985. Highlights include: Benjamin Pogrund's extraordinary coverage of the Sharpeville massacre in 1960; Helen Zille's uncovering of Steve Biko’s murder at the hands of police in 1976; news-breaking reporting by Mervyn Rees and Chris Day about the apartheid state's effort to influence opinion, an exposé that sparked the scandal known as “Muldergate."
