SowetanLIVE, published by Tiso Blackstar Group in Johannesburg, is the website of the Sowetan, the English-language South African daily newspaper that started in 1981 as a liberation struggle publication and which serves a proudly South African readership who have earned the right to be in the know and on the move.
The website carries content from the print edition of the Sowetan along with unique online-only content throughout the day, all week long – general and political news; entertainment and celebrities; soccer and other sport; and much more. It is one of South Africa's largest online news publications, with more than 1.5-million readers per month who spend on average nearly five minutes on each article.
The website is also the home of the popular Mzansi’s Sexiest contest. Every year, our readers choose two celebrities as Mzansi’s Sexiest male and female. The top 12 celebrities are featured in our downloadable calendar.
All online content is free to read, though readers need to register (quick and free) to comment on articles or subscribe to our range of email newsletters. (Already registered on BusinessLIVE or TimesLIVE? Sign in with the same details.)
The SowetanLIVE website includes the Sunday World website, which delivers fresh celebrity news and gossip and other news all week long.
