South Africa newspaper unable to print… again

A South African daily newspaper will for the second day not publish a print edition because of the ongoing violence and looting.

Thursday’s edition of The Witness newspaper will be circulated online after the newspaper suspended printing on Wednesday.

It said that it was halting printing “until further notice”.

The paper is published in Pietermaritzburg and widely read in KwaZulu-Natal province – former President Jacob Zuma’s home turf – that has been affected by the violence.

The Witness on its website linked to an online edition saying it was sharing it “as a service to the province”.

The newspaper had on Wednesday tweeted a headline on the destruction of property when it suspended printing:
