Zimbabwe: Government newspaper website hacked?

Did someone hack the website of Zimbabwe's Herald newspaper?: “The Herald newspaper's website has been down since it was hacked over the weekend. Currently the website will re-direct you to the Sunday Mail website another arm of the government's propaganda machine. The state run Herald's website had all it's links replaced with the words ‘Gukurahundi’ in reference to the government's clampdown on the people of Matebeleland in the 1980s when a lot of civilians were killed by the Korean trained soldiers.”
