A new daily newspaper, The Mail, today hit the streets of Harare, bringing to five daily newspapers published in Zimbabwe.

The others are The Herald in Harare and The Chronicle in Bulawayo from the Zimbabwe Newspapers (1980) Limited Group, Newsday from Alpha Media Holdings (Private) Limited owned by mogul, Trevor Ncube, and The Daily News from the Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe (Private) Limited (ANZ).

Zimpapers also has two tabloid papers H-Metro for Harare and B-Metro for Bulawayo.

The Daily News was relaunched late this month after it had been removed from the streets of Zimbabwe because its bosses failed to apply for an operating licence on time.

The Mail is understood to be edited by Barnabus Thondhlana, who was surprisingly at The Daily News as Deputy Editor under John Gambanga currently Managing Editor.

It could not be established whether, in fact, Thondlana had resigned from his new job at the relaunched The Daily News newspaper under Gambanga.

The Mail has a tabloid format.

The paper costs US$1 like The Herald and The Chronicle.

The owner of The Mail was said to be a tycoon known simply as "Herbert" who lived in South Africa.
