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.

mind your language

ENGLISH is a medium of instruction at our schools and it’s also a universal language. It’s important our children understand and speak the language fluently if they are to get ahead in life. But it’s not acceptable for young people to use English to be disrespectful towards their parents or grandparents. Many elderly people who didn’t go beyond primary school level don’t understand English very well. When they address their children, they speak to them in their language. For children to respond in English is disrespectful. Children need to know that being better educated than their parents doesn’t mean they should disrespect them. Your parents put you in school so you can be employable when you graduate. Continue to show them respect by speaking to them in the language they taught you, even if you…

THE PEOPLE’S PREMIER WHAT an inspiration Northern Cape premier Zamani Saul is. In this day and age we usually only hear of corruption when it comes to politicians. So it was wonderful to sit down with this humble man who is in politics not for the fame and glory, but to help his people. We would love it if all our politicians could adopt his attitude. Imagine a South Africa where political leaders did more for us than for themselves? Where they don’t spend millions on luxury cars and homes. Where instead they use that money for things that could improve the lives of citizens? Turn to page 10 to read more about this man who’s doing such great things. Until next time, THE DRUM TEAM NOT A DEATH SENTENCE It is not necessary for people living…

DJ Fresh couldn’t hold back the tears when he received a surprise visit from Bonang Matheba on his first day at radio 947, where he started hosting his new afternoon-drive show. DRUM readers shared his excitement. Fresh is a brand and will always have a following. His voice is magic. MALETE MANGOLO It’s hard not to love Queen B. She is so amazing. NAKAMPE RAMAFALO I visited him too, but nobody noticed my visit. Life ain’t fair. T-BONE NEPS It is nice to see people supporting each other, celebrities or not. It’s a nice thing to do. Thank you, my queen. Keep shining guys. PATRICIA MODAU This show is bigger than 5FM’s Fresh Drive. VIKTA VICTOR NGOBEN I miss him on Metro, though. The breakfast show won’t be the same without him. BABALWA MLONYENI She did it for her reality show, LOL. Anyway,…

FIRST there was Gareth Cliff who was suspended from 5fm after interviewing Jesus”. Then DJ Sbu was sent packing from Metro FM for promoting his energy drink at the Metro FM Awards. And who can forget Phat Joe being axed from Radio 2000 for making homophobic comments? South Africa has no shortage of jocks being kicked off air, but up until recently DJ Fresh has largely toed the line. Then the popular radio personality found himself under fire for using foul language on air and his future in radio became the talk of the town after he was suspended from Metro FM. But Fresh (47), fed up with the drawn-out disciplinary procedure, decided to cross over to 947 where he now heads up the radio station’s drive-time show. It’s the first time he’d…
