“We wanted to make sure everyone in the rural areas of Amathole, which is where we are based, gets important information,” – he said.
While helping the community with no access to phones, TVs or even WiFi to consume the news, NTU News will also will also advertise jobs that people can apply for.
““We will also be advertising job posts in the newspaper, so people can know of new positions opening up. The vision of the paper is really to educate and develop our community.” – Luthuli said
He also added: “We did that on purpose. We want to show people that the virus should not stop their lives. The newspaper will also be a vehicle for communication where people can be educated about the virus.”
