Idinga is one of 9 newspapers published and printed by Group Editors, George.

Idinga is launched to reflect and give voice to the vibrant and fast-growing community of Thembalethu and surrounds.

The name of the newspaper, Idinga derives from a famous Methodist Church hymn which was composed by Reverand Tiyo Soga, “Lizalis’ idinga lakho”. This translates to fulfill/realise your promise. It is in this context of this hymn that Idinga would like to achieve, together with the people of George, the promise of bringing the people of this community together.

The editor of the newspaper is Zolani Sinxo who, up till now, has been part of the George Herald and George Mini's editorial team. Zolani will be assisted by the existing team of journalists while Siphokazi Kraai, a poet, and writer from Thembalethu, has been enlisted to concentrate exclusively on stories for Idinga.

Idinga will be distributed every Friday.

If you have a story for us, please ensure it reaches us before 15:00 on a Wednesday. Your social photographs must reach us before 12:00 on a Monday.

The deadline for advertisements is Tuesdays at 15:00.
