Ziwaphi is an investigative and a general interest, biweekly, tabloid-size newspaper, with an estimated 40,000 readers. It was started with funding from the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA). The MDDA is an agency that was established by the South African government to redress the exclusion and marginalisation of victims of apartheid policies from access to the media and the media industry, media ownership and control.
The name Ziwaphi is a colloquial Nguni expression, which means “What’s Happening and Where?” – these are the two of the five most important questions when gathering news in journalism. The newspaper is the brainchild of Tom Nkosi, a public relations graduate from the University of South Africa who also received his journalism training at the Singapore Press Holdings.
