“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”

-Nelson Mandela

Who is Vernac News?

We are a community of like-minded individuals, who all speak the language of politics, culture, economics and other issues that all centered around the youth of South Africa. The youth of South Africa whose voices and opinions regularly slip through the cracks of mainstream media. We represent those voices and allow them to express themselves freely

What sets us apart is the fact that we allow the youth to speak to these issues not only in English but in their mother-tongue – in their Vernacular

Ideally, we want Vernac News to be the tool that unifies the youth, striving for inclusivity through the languages of our land.

We are Vernac News and we write what we like!
