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.

stronger together

SIYA Kolisi spoke like a true rainbow nation leader in his interview after the Springboks beat England to win the Webb Ellis Cup (The champs are here, 14 November). He said their success in the Rugby World Cup was a result of teamwork and hard work. He encouraged the nation to work together if we are to achieve more. Working together is what everyone encourages but it boggles the mind why we continue to grow apart in many spheres. It seems that by saying “we need to work together” we aren’t referring to ourselves but to others. Whoever sees the need to work successfully with others must lead by example. No man is an island – there is no way you can succeed without help and support. By supporting others you invite more support…

THE DEVIL NEXT DOOR LOSING a child is every parent’s worst nightmare. We can’t imagine anything more devastating than raising a child only for that life to be senselessly snuffed out. The Mashao family are still reeling, years later, after the horrific murder of not only one but two children – a son and a daughter. And compounding the family’s trauma is the fact that the siblings were slaughtered by their own brother, who claimed that the devil drove him to do it (see page 14). The story has us thinking about how well we really know those around us. We hope the family is getting support from mental health professionals as well as the community. Until next week, THE DRUM TEAM UNITED NATION The wave of euphoria that washed across Mzansi after our Rugby World Cup victory…

the end of a fairytale

THEY seemed to have it all – a happy marriage, beautiful boys and glittering careers. Nkosinathi Maphumulo, better known as DJ Black Coffee, and actress Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa were nothing if not an It couple. Doting parents and perfect partners, they dripped #couplegoals. It seemed nothing could shake Black Coffee (43) and Enhle (31) – not even the rumours of infidelity that had long dogged them. Yes, they had their ups and downs, but they stood together in dignified silence. Then Enhle dropped an explosive video on Instagram. She’d woken up to a tabloid story of her pending separation and posted a response in which she confirmed the news and admitted to having had a “very, very, very rough year”. Enhle has asked for privacy while she picks up the pieces of her…
