In the 1950's, DRUM was a pioneer of black journalism bringing together courageous investigative journalism and cutting-edge photojournalism for Africa. But DRUM isn't just about history. South Africa has changed a lot in the last 50 years, and DRUM has kept pace with these changes. Today it is a thoroughly modern magazine in touch with its readers. Our recipe for success is simple but effective: we give our readers what they want.

Day after day we’ve been hearing more horror stories after Uyinene Mrwetyana’s devastating death, allegedly at the hands of aPost Office worker. The UCT student’s murder has united the nation in a big way and on page 6her friends describe this special person who rallied everyone to stand against the scourge of violence against women. DRUM also wants to play a role in changing things. It won’t be easy, but in the weeks and months to come we’ll feature people and organisations who are countering violence against women and children (page 10).

Here some of the University of Cape Town student’s friends share their thoughts about this young woman, who brutally lost her life at the age of 19. ‘Our relationship grew into a sisterhood. you always stood up for me, you always knew hoe to cheer me up’ CAITLYN POOLE Caitlyn met Uyinene in Grade 1 at Hudson Park Primary School in East London. “We literally…
