About Tembisan

The Tembisan showcases Caxton‘s excellent standard of newspaper design, high standard of journalism, its dedication to reach and serve its communities, and living up to its motto of excellence. We believe in in-depth journalism and provide our readers with the information they need. We strive to embrace the different opinions and viewpoints of the community. The Tembisan caters for all age groups with a focus on stories about the youth and entrepreneurs. We write news as it is, and we have well-trained journalists who make sure you get the latest in local news, schools, current affairs, entertainment and sports. In 2014 The Tembisan was revamped with a new, fresh look. The revamp project steered towards one specific goal – giving Tembisa residents a newspaper that speaks to them. The Tembisan is the newspaper of choice for both reader and advertiser. Caxton ROOTS 2016 figures show The Tembisan coming out tops on readership figures in our distribution footprint. These survey results show we are the leader in providing local content and the ideal platform for advertisers to reach their market. ROOTS (Readership Opinion Opportunities Trends Shopping) is South Africa’s largest urban, community level independent survey. The survey allows us to better understand our readers and to adjust with ever changing times. ROOTS also provide marketers with vital demographic information for their customer base. Interesting Roots 2016 facts:
  • 42 percent of Tembisan distribution footprint speaks Zulu, 33 percent Northern Sotho and eight percent speak Tsonga.
