And a new, more accessible, subscription tier

Good afternoon. As you may by now have noticed, Zitamar News has moved onto a new platform, to simplify and improve the experience for us and for you. You may not notice much of a change; but crucially, logging in to the site should now be a much easier process. Instead of a password, subscribers request a login link, which is sent by email and which will then keep you logged in more or less forever. Entering the password every time you visit is a thing of the past! Still, if you have any issues, please email

(In another change, we have also done away with copy protection on our articles.)

New, cheaper subscriptions:

We are also happy to announce a new, more accessible way to subscribe to Zitamar News. Instead of selling access to individual articles at £15 each, as of today you can buy a month’s access to Zitamar News for just £9 — or £90 for a year — giving you access to our whole archive of news articles and features, and to our archive of newsletters pre-migration.

What remains on the pricier tier, now called Zitamar Pro, is the full Zitamar Daily Briefing, including summaries and analysis of the top stories of the day from Mozambique. For now, the price of a ‘Zitamar Pro’ subscription remains the same; all that’s changed is the name.

For corporate subscription prices, please contact

There’s never been a better time to subscribe!
