Your favourite local newspaper, Bloemfontein Courant, turns 10 this month and as a part of the celebrations we want to hear from you, our readers. Nomaqhawe Mtebele spoke to a few residents from around Bloemfontein who wished the paper a happy birthday.

Collin Mokuchana: “Happy, happy birthday, Bloemfontein Courant! We really appreciate to have media like you in our city, of which there are very few. My wife loves the adverts in Courant and I love the stories with great headlines. I normally read online to keep up to date on things that happen around us. I hope that you have 10 more years.”

Pieter Prinsloo: “Thank you for all the news that I can read every morning. It is always up to date with the things that happen around Bloemfontein. I usually read stories online because it is convenient as I can get updates wherever I am and getting content online is more environmentally friendly.”

Bernard Meyer: “I hope that Bloemfontein Courant has a fantastic birthday. You guys always keep us up to date with an excellent newspaper that is full of useful local content. I really wish you luck in the future and may the newspaper have 10 more years.”

Adelaide Mokoena: “Bloemfontein Courant is very informative and relevant to Bloemfontein residents specifically. I like that the content is relevant to me and where I live. Have a happy birthday and I wish the paper many more to come.”

Katriena van Heerden: “Ek is bly vir julle (Bloemfontien Courant) vir julle 10 jaar en mag julle van krag tot krag gaan en hou so aan dis goeie werk wat julle doen. Bloemfontein Courant is n fantastiese koerant want ons kry nie nuus van Bloemfontein en julle bring vir ons die nuus.”


Meloni Senosky: “Bloemfontein Courant is n wonderlike gemeenskap koerant en dit sluit in alle tipe rasse en dit gee vir elkeen n geleentheid om hul storie te vertel. Mag die koerant nog vele jare Bloemfontein dien.”
