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.

I’VE been blessed with very supportive colleagues at my workplace. We’ve started a club where we do activities together over weekends such as running, hiking and reading. It’s true that it’s less intimidating and more encouraging to try new things with people who support each other. Our team consists of people of all ages, genders and sizes and I love the sense of camaraderie we have. Many of my lessons have come from the people I’ve teamed up with. I went from running just over a kilometre every once in a while to running 5km every weekend. I’m now in love with running! I’m not the best on the team but we encourage one other and I ignore judgments from people who don’t know what I’m trying to achieve. Believe in yourself, work hard…

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY THE issue of dads not being part of their kids’ lives is something many of us know all too well. They’re either not in their lives or not playing a supporting role and many of them shirk their financial obligations too. That’s why it was so lovely to feature Khaya Mthethwa and his little one in our magazine this week (page 10). We also show football star Reneilwe “Yeye” Letsholonyane with his two kids and the images will warm your heart (page 12). These men are role models who show their children what it means to be responsible, loving and present. We salute them and all the other dads who do so. Happy Father’s Day! Until next time, THE DRUM TEAM MOVING ON Today’s romantic relationships don’t last long and some of us find it difficult…

Lerato Sengadi has allegedly been excluded from HHP’s will after it was revealed the musician had left his entire estate to his 14-year-old son, Leano. DRUM readers weighed in on this revelation. I still love Lerato but I do understand Jabba’s reasons. May his soul rest in peace. SITHEMBISO KOS A will can be contested and Lerato can try. At least 50% of his estate should be hers anyway as she’s a customary wife. THULI MAMNTSHILIBE Fair enough. This makes sense as she was no longer in his life. MMATHAPELO VALE BASHELE Wait until the appeal. If she wins the case she’ll be entitled to half the estate. MBALENHLE MCDUSTY KHUBONE At least he left something for his son. NONCEBA SINDI Now can she start working for her own riches and stop sponging off HHP’s legacy. NAMHLA MASTHATHU NXOSHA She’d left him already.…

suffering in silence

‘She sings about her worries being washed away’ EVERYONE thought she was fine. She seemed to have her depression under control and was taking her medication. Then the unthinkable happened. Nichume Siwundla took her own life by jumping off the balcony of a friend’s second-floor flat in Greenstone, Johannesburg, devastating her loved ones and shattering her fans. The singer’s brother, Qamani (29), says the family are taking her death hard and her sisters, Buhle (23) and Nisi (5), “aren’t handling it well at all”. “At the moment we’re working on making sure my sister has a beautiful send-off. My parents are trying to stay strong but she was their everything. “All we ask is for people to give us a bit of time to let the news sink in.” Then he adds, “I guess we have…
