Independent broadcaster has done it again.

Bronwyn Keene-Young,'s chief operating officer, says: "Over the past nine years eNews has established itself as the most authoritative source of television news in South Africa. The 7pm bulletin is the most-watched English news in the country.

"The launch of the Zulu and Sotho bulletins builds on the success of the eNews brand and provides Zulu and Sotho speaking South Africans the opportunity to watch eNews in their home languages," she said.

The bulletins will be anchored in Sotho by Segametsi Moiloa, and Mabutho Ngcobo will do the Zulu segment.
