New look online Sowetan

Welcome to the new-look Sowetan website.

Welcome to the new-look Sowetan website.

This website has gone from strength to strength since its launch just over a year ago, thanks to you our loyal readers, with latest figures showing an amazing 1,2 million page impressions a month.

But like all products it was starting to look a little tired, so we gave it a makeover.

Bright, breezy and easy to navigate, the new site is designed with you, the reader, in mind.

Our aim is to provide you with the latest in breaking news - both locally and globally.

You'll also see unique multi-media and web extras.

For our launch Tim Modise kicks off our brand-new Podcast feature, so if you want to know about the 2010 World Cup preparations, you need to tune in here.

You'll also see an exclusive Sowetan Online Video interview with Collyn Mandana, who blew the whistle on the Fidentia scandal and has been fighting for the rights of miners and their families for 25 years.

You can now find all your favourites online, including Sport, Motoring, GoodLife and Entertainment - with updates throughout the day.

You will also be able to read all your favourite columnists - from the hard-hitting and sometimes controversial Sports Indaba to the more light- hearted look at life with Charles Mogale.

There will always be something for everyone.

Let us know what you think.

We welcome your involvement and interaction. So much so, in fact, that we're starting a new In Box and Feedback zone where your news and comments will be published. You can email us at:

So for the latest happenings simply log onto and enjoy.
