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.

teen moms

TEENAGE pregnancy has a profound impact on these young girls’ futures. Without proper support and help, a teen mother is less likely to finish high school and pursue a career. Teen pregnancies remain a serious health and social problem in South Africa. Not only does it create a potential health risk for both mother and child, but it also has social consequences such as continuing the cycle of poverty, including early school dropout by the pregnant teen. Education is one way a young girl or woman can empower herself to become financially independent. Becoming a teenage mother will force you to put your dreams aside while you raise a baby. As you’ll still be a child yourself, this will add further financial strain on your family as well. It’s vital that parents speak to…

FRAUGHT FAMILY FEUD PICTURE it: your sister and her two children are murdered. Your brother-in-law is suspected of killing them after he too is found dead in their home. No one really knows what happened but his family believes he had no hand in the grisly triple murder – and they want them all to be buried together as a family. Your family doesn’t think your sister will rest in peace if she’s buried with the man believed to be responsible for her death. But his family wants to follow tradition and bury them together as she’s a member of their family. It’s an agonising situation for all those involved. Turn to page 8 for the full story. Until next week, THE DRUM TEAM MOTHER’S TONGUE I have observed some strange behaviour by parents, particularly mothers, towards…

Footballer Thamsanqa Gabuza kept the death of his son a secret and didn’t attend his child’s funeral, reportedly so he would not distract his teammates from focusing on the MTN8 final, where he helped SuperSport United win the trophy. Readers shared their thoughts. Big up to Gabuza and his family for keeping such a devastating and emotional event to themselves. THABO MOKENELA I hope football will be there for him when things go south. This is out of order. The child had two parents – was the mother forced to deal with the child’s death alone because Thamsanqa had a game to play? RETSHEDISITSWE PRI LEKALAKE It is not just soccer, it’s his career, and he chose it over his child. I would have buried my son and taken time to mourn. TERRENCE MAHLATSE MOCHABELA I was…

setting the record straight

‘For the first time I’m doing something because I want to’ SHE thought she was done with showbiz. There were reports Brenda Ngxoli packed her bags and headed home because like many actors, she was unhappy with the cutthroat industry. Others said she was broke. But when we speak to the actress about why she took such a long break, she sets the record straight. She’d been thinking about leaving for a while, she tells DRUM. “It’s funny seeing those stories about me as I didn’t leave because I didn’t have money, or because I was angry with the industry. “I didn’t leave because of an alcohol or drug problem. I followed my heart for my own physical and spiritual growth.” Though the 39-year-old stepped out of the spotlight for a while – seven…
