The XYZ is an English language daily morning newspaper owned by Independent News and Media and published in Cape Town, South Africa and is the most widely circulated daily newspaper in Cape Town. For years it was the only morning newspaper in English. The first edition of the newspaper was published on 27 March 1876 by then editor Paul and Kathrin. Modeled on The Times, its primary target was the poor working class, as it attempted to expose early government corruption. In its political comment this newspaper tended to support the line associated with the Botha-Smuts tradition, but it has always been an independent newspaper not formally connected with any political party. As of 2009 the newspaper had a daily readership of 272 000 and a circulation of 47 514 and is the sister newspaper of Cape Argus
