How do you put out a paper when riots have paralyzed the city?
By building calf muscles as strong as Diego Forlan’s!
We walked. And walked. On day 2 of the riots, Fernando Mbanze, the editor of Savana sister’s publication, Media Fax started walking at 6:30 am and reached the newsroom 22 kms later, at 10:30. Several times the Savana car tried to reach him but either protesters or police, barricades of burning tyres or random shooting, prevented the car from going through. So Mbanze walked on.
Fearing their cars might be stoned, damaged or burnt, car owners did not venture out.
