NiemanLab: Daily Nation, the largest newspaper in Kenya, adopts a paywall — and predicts more African-owned publications will, too. “To read Nation articles more than seven days old — like this report that thousands of students have failed to turn up at schools after their nine-month closure due to Covid-19 or a viral column asking ‘Who is the banana republic now?’ following the U.S. Capitol riot — users will have to pay up. Subscriptions start at 50Ksh for one week, 150Ksh for one month, or 750Ksh for one year. (50Ksh is about 45 cents USD.)”
