Sunday Times

The Sunday Times is South Africa's biggest Sunday newspaper. It is distributed all over South Africa and in neighbouring countries such as Lesotho, Botswana and Swaziland.

First published on February 4 1906, the Paper for the People has become an institution in South Africa and an essential weekend read throughout the country. It has earned a reputation for producing hard-hitting, relevant, independent, well-written and authoritative news, particularly on the political front.

Known for its in-depth investigative journalism, the Sunday Times covers all major national and international news, and publishes influential columnists, analysis, lifestyle content, sport and entertainment. Based in Parktown, Johannesburg, it is edited by Bongani Siqoko and published by Tiso Blackstar Group.
