Drum English 23-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.

hold that thought

THERE are certain topics that are very sensitive for most people. If people don’t start conversations about their weight, marriage, academic success, family struggles or unemployment, don’t ask them about it. Unless you’re going to offer positive advice or assistance, that is. Our lives are stressful enough, we don’t need nosey individuals who feel superior to add to our worries. If you can’t positively contribute to someone’s wellbeing, don’t destroy the little hope they have. Most of the pressure we feel is unnecessary, it’s placed on us by societal expectations and attitudes. Let us put a stop to this. CANDICE MORELO, EMAIL THE WINNING LETTER RECEIVES R300.

UNSTOPPABLE CASTER Caster Semenya, we’re proud of you (‘I will rise again’, 16 May). You’re a proud African woman who has always risen above adversity. A strong woman isn’t defined by her ability to be tough, cold or emotionless, a strong woman is one who perseveres. She supports other women instead of bringing them down and finds strength within herself. You were born strong even as society tries to present women as weak and fragile. You, Caster, are truly unbreakable. MASEDI FUSI, JOBURG LETTING GO I’ve always wondered why it’s so easy to fall in love but so hard to move on when a relationship ends. My fiancée and I recently broke up and I was devastated. What kills me is that I tolerated so much from her in the four years we were together, hoping…

your opinions

Rapper AKA and his baby mama, DJ Zinhle, are officially an item again. DRUM readers shared their thoughts on the reunion. AKA, aka Mr Yo-Yo. THIMOTHY MASANGO He is so arrogant, I wonder why she keeps going back to him. GEORGE MOKOENA I hope they just get married this time. Kairo is big now and needs a baby brother or sister. CLARA CLARA That’s good news for them! TAFADZWA CHIRINDA It’s funny how some ladies are bashing Zinhle for taking AKA back yet they do the same with their exes. LWANDE NENE KAMBATHA I have a lot of relationship experience and one lesson I learnt the hard way is to never say never. I’m all for them working things out but if they separate again I’ll still be rooting for them and their new partners. ANDILE BIYELA They’re a lovely couple. MAXOLI MBIKO After Mampintsha…
