Drum English 6-Jun-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.

give the youth a chance

BEING a young person in South Africa might be the hardest thing ever. Yes, we have freedom and opportunities but, often, getting ahead depends on who you know. There are many graduates who are unemployed because of the “experience” that employers require from job seekers. In reality you have to work hard at your studies to get a qualification and hustle even harder to make ends meet. Young people are always being encouraged to start their own businesses but this requires capital and very few business people and financial institutions are willing to back a new and unknown business. If only we could give one another a chance, then we might be able to curb unemployment and help grow our country, together. BARBARA LUVHENGO, EMAIL THE WINNING LETTER RECEIVES R300. Letters should be about 100 words. Write to…

ed's note

JUSTICE IS DONE IT’S almost impossible to imagine the pain Jane Leteane is going through. Her beautiful boy – the light in her life – was murdered at the hands of a father who simply didn’t want to pay maintenance. Kearabetswe was just 17 years old when all hopes of a bright future ended. There would be no studying medicine, no helping his mother, no spouse, no kids. All because his estranged father didn’t want to pay maintenance for the child he’d fathered (see page 10). The issue of papgeld is always a serious one in South Africa but this is one of the worst cases of not wanting to pay that we’ve seen in a long time. It’s an unimaginable crime and at least justice has finally been done. Until next week, THE DRUM…

Actress Meagan Good is married to a preacher but rarely attends church “because my experience with some church folks has not been that positive”. DRUM readers share their thoughts. Church is not God’s home address. You can visit but you don’t have to be a tenant. LEBO TSIAKO There is no God in church, any church. God is within you. GWINYINTUTHU MAGEBA She is not a religious fanatic, she is a spiritual woman. MALCOLM Y MCKAYA She is too busy for church. THEREZA NAZREC I’m not surprised she’s doing this. Some so-called Christians seem to have forgotten the lessons Jesus tried to teach us about tolerance and humility and respect. TEBOHO MAZIYA A lot of people are turning away from the church because of church folks. Whatever happened to taking a person as they are and letting God deal with their…

murdered to avoid papgeld

HE WAS the apple of his mother’s eye, the brilliant boy who was top of his class and wanted to study medicine at the University of Cape Town after finishing school. Jane Leteane (42) was unemployed so she did the only thing she could think of to secure her son’s future: she applied for future maintenance from his estranged father to cover the university fees. Little did she know that by doing so she was digging her beloved boy’s grave. Sixteen-year-old Kearabetswe Leteane was shot and killed in April 2017 in the backroom of his grandparents’ home in Thaba Nchu in the Free State. His father, Tebogo Molatole (47), a former teacher, was arrested soon afterwards, along with his wife, Kelebogile (49). The pair was convicted of murder, for hiring a hitman to kill…
