As if Zimbabwe didn’t have enough problems their national newspaper, The Herald, has been brought to its knees by hackers.

The state controlled newspaper has been criticized in the past as being a mouthpiece for the governing party Zanu-PF.

According to Reuters: “The website http://www.herald.co.zw/ has been unavailable since Saturday after it was hacked by someone calling himself “r4b00f”. Visitors were redirected to the website of a state-owned Sunday newspaper.”

“Headlines on the site were replaced by the word Gukurahundi, referring to a campaign of atrocities the government has been accused of committing after independence,” said Reuters.
