The Mail & Guardian is South Africa’s premium weekly investigative newspaper. Established during the dark days of Apartheid (known, at the time, as The Weekly Mail, the newspaper’s team of reporters  pushed the envelope to tell the stories that government and others wanted to keep away from public view. The Mail & Guardian continues to be a thorn in the side of those who flout the law. Over the years, Okapi Consulting’s Stephanie Wolters and David Smith have made significant contributions to the paper – Stephanie contributes political analysis pieces, especially on events in the Great Lakes Region, and has even been Africa editor of the M&G. David contributes occasional analysis and reporting as well as a column on finding books and interesting bookshops in off-the-beaten-track parts of the continent in a feature called Book Safari.
