As from April 2011, Vuk’uzenzele has taken on new look and will be published every month instead of every second month. Instead of its former A4 format, the printed version of Vuk’uzenzele is now published as a tabloid newspaper. It will still be full of news and advice on socio-economic opportunities created by government, and how to access these opportunities.
Government has committed itself to making a difference in the lives of people by addressing five key priority areas. They are education, safety and security, health, job creation and rural development.
Each issue of Vuk’uzenzele will carry information and news about government’s programmes relating to these priorities. It will include a special four-page supplement, called Employment News, which will address matters relating to job creation, careers and skills development. Among other things, it will also feature news on youth matters, international relations, events, advice and sport and recreation.
It has a print run of 1,7 million copies, which are distributed in all nine provinces, in large part door-to-door in deep rural, rural and peri-urban areas. It is published in all official languages, but the majority of the print-run is in English. It is also published in Braille for the visually impaired
