Published by Ingabadi Media Group , UBukhosi is the only free publication in South Africa catering for rural citizens. The publication not only bring together content and news from across rural KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga but also reports authoritatively on rural political economy, cultural heritage, traditional institutions and leadership. The publication recognizes rural communities as full citizens who deserve to be heard and also participate in their own development. These are active citizens who are willing to participate beyond elections.
Published monthly, UBukhosi runs themed editions, thus able to focus on producing enterprise coverage and informative features. The publication is a tabloid with in-depth writing, supported by a lively design and layout format, photographs and illustrations. Like all Ingabadi Media Group tittles, the information is compressed and written such that all sectors of our society can read and understand the meaning.
In addition to its enterprise journalism, UBukhosi publish special reports on local governance, rural development and agriculture, local economic development, public participation and policy monitoring. The main aim of our special supplements is to give all three spheres of government the opportunity to showcase service delivery initiatives and demonstrate how the elected representatives remain in contact with the electorate and communicate the government programmes and inform people who do not have access to mainstream media how to access these opportunities.
