  • Description

    Johannesburg in South Africa now has two new newspapers -- "The Post" and the "Sunday Post" -- but they're a far cry from the black newspapers, "The World" and "Weekend World" that were closed down by the South African Minister of Police, Mr. Jimmy Kruger, in his countrywide clampdown on anti-apartheid organisations.

    SYNOPSIS: Printing of the first of the papers began on Saturday (29 October). Both the broadsheet "Sunday Post" and its tabloid sized weekday companion publication are being produced in the Johannesburg offices off the Argus newspaper roup which published the banned "World" and "Weekend World". The black editor of "The World", Percy Qoboza was among those jailed in the clampdown.

    The editor of "The Post" is white -- Mr. John Miskelly. He explained the paper's position.
