Huffington Post SA introduces indigenous offerings

The recent launch of The Huffington Post South Africa brings fresh perspective on how to produce news, politics, and lifestyle.

Speaking to Editor-in-Chief, Verashni Pillay, 702's Stephen Grootes finds out what we can expect from the publication.

Award-winning journalist, Asanda Magaqa's Xhosa blog is the first of many indigenous language offerings expected from bloggers.

Asanda was our first contributor in Xhosa and we're hoping to get a few more in other languages and we're very excited about this initiative.
