Die Burger (orig. De Burger, later Di Burger, as the spelling of Afrikaans developed) [1] is an influential Afrikaans-language (earlier Dutch-) daily newspaper in Cape Town. Founded in 1915, with D.F. Malan (1874-1959) [2] (journalist, politician and later Prime Minister) as the first editor, it played a substantial role in promoting serious culture among its Afrikaans readers. By the 1970s it had also become the more liberal of the Afrikaans newspapers, the voice of the verligte (enlightened) contingent of the Nationalist Party.
