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.

NOBODY imagined that one day the whole world would stand and cry together in one sad voice. And yet the coronavirus managed to do that to us. I’m a nurse at a public hospital and I’m scared of this pandemic, which spreads like wildfire. It kills. It wipes out the rich and the poor alike. It takes those who heal and those who take care of the sick. It has killed many healthcare workers like they were nothing. It hurts. We feel less safe each day. I felt appreciated by the world when it celebrated us not so long ago, on International Nurses Day. Thanks a lot. We felt loved. This profession is one that requires love and care from the world. We need that like never before. Please, pray for us. We…

I did matric in 2006 when I was 25 years old. I left school in 2001 in the middle of the year because of some difficulties I had. It took me years to realise the potential in myself. Luckily I was accepted back at my old school and I now have a matric certificate. The thought of reaching Grade 12 and not having something to show for it had me feeling like I was cheating myself.LULAMILE CEDRICK Education is not the only signifier of success. There are other parameters, such as talent and skill.TUMI MATLAPENG This proves that age ain’t nothing but a number.

goodbye, tau!

A PETTY crook who builds a criminal empire. A best man on a road trip across Mzansi to get the groom to his wedding on time. A lawyer who discovers his friend is behind a series of cash-in-transit heists. Whatever big-lead part you can think of, Rapulana Seiphemo has played it. He’s acted in everything from soaps to feature films, but if there’s one role he’s known for it’s Tau Mogale. Long before the show became known as Generations: The Legacy, Rapulana played the part of the high-flying businessman everyone loves to hate. Now he’s parting ways with the soap that made him a household name. After 18 years he’s gearing up for a new adventure. He’s joining the cast of Mzansi Magic’s The Queen, where he’ll be reunited with former co-star…

it’s back to school – but it won’t be easy

NO MORE frantic googling to figure out how to explain long division to your child. No more nagging, begging and tearing out your hair as you try to get your kids to buckle down and do their schoolwork. At first glance there seemed to be obvious upsides to Grade 7 and Grade 12 learners, with the exception of the Western Cape, returning to school from Monday 8 June. They’ll get back to proper schooling, be out of your hair while you try to work and they’ll generally start to get back to normal life with their friends. But the fear of Covid-19 is still ever-present, leaving many parents to wonder just how exactly their kids are going to be safe once they’re back on the school benches. Sure, global statistics show the vast…
