One of South Africa’s most prominent newspapers, the Sowetan was launched as a response to apartheid conditions in Soweto and other segregated communities. Impassioned editorials, engaging political columns and firsthand reporting helped the Sowetan become the country’s most widely circulated black paper.
After the South African government banned publication of the Post Transvaal and three other black newspapers in 1980, journalists, editors and publishers began producing the English-language paper the Sowetan. The newspaper includes contributions of legendary editors like Percy Qoboza and Aggrey Klaaste.
