Drum English 16-May-19

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.

dream smart

I RECENTLY attended a motivational workshop for high school learners in my community where most of the speakers had a similar message. They all said the learners should be brutal and chase their dreams. They said learners could and should do whatever they want to do. In a world where all is fair this could be true, but fair doesn’t really exist in the world we live in. Learners should be taught how to choose their careers carefully. As disconcerting as it is, some careers have become stagnant and learners should be advised to consider which jobs are in demand when they make their decisions. This may be an unpopular opinion but it’s what separates graduates who find employment from those who don’t. CANDICE MORELO, EMAIL THE WINNING LETTER RECEIVES R300. Letters should be about 100 words.…

stay strong

TO HEAR that a sports body wants to change who you are because of their discriminatory views – which they themselves admit are discriminatory – must have been one of the worst moments of her life. Yet Caster Semenya remains strong during these trying times. The IAAF may think they’re going to break her, but SA’s golden girl has endured a great deal in her life, and she’s not yet done showing her strength. We are outraged on her behalf and that of every other woman who has had her body put on display for everyone else to have an opinion on. We stand against those who think they can dictate to women who they should be and hope Caster finds peace amid this pain. Until next week, THE DRUM TEAM We would…

BEWARE FALSE FRIENDS Many people live in misery because of the people they associate with. We must be careful who we mix with as there are evil people out there who won’t hesitate to take advantage of us. Not everyone will be happy with your progress in life, and that’s why it’s vital to know who to trust, and who you can honestly share your plans and goals with. Remember, you don’t owe anyone an explanation about actions that take you closer to your goals. Be careful because some people may be out to sabotage your goals. MESHACK MATHE, EMAIL PETROL WOES Everyone knows the petrol price is high, very high. And most people know the weak rand and high crude oil prices are to blame. But we don’t always realise the full extent of the increases as we…
