    My local purveyor (Spar Glenwood Village, Moore Road Durban) does not stock the Citizen. When one subscribes, how does one receive one’s copy?

      Hi John. My advice would be to subscribe to the online copy and read it on your desktop/laptop/phone etc. There are options of getting the print copy too, but you’d have to call the number below to see if they deliver to your area:

      The Citizen now offers an e-edition and print bundle subscription.

      Do you enjoy having your newspaper available wherever you are, as well as the paper to page through at your convenience?

      Or, would you like your friends and family overseas to enjoy your favourite newspaper as well?

      Maybe you would like to enjoy your newspaper online and donate your print copy to a school or retirement home?

      We have the solution for you with our bundle subscriptions*.

      Our bundle options are available for subscriptions of 3, 6 and 12 months. You can also choose between a Monday to Friday subscription or a Monday to Saturday subscription.

      * Physical deliveries are only available in certain areas. Call 0860 32-62-62 to find out if your area is covered.

    The EFF obviously hate shopping and shops. Be they Woolies, Clicks or whatever. I always hated shopping. I have youthful memories of endlessly and boringly hanging around in Stuttafords or Greenacres, while my mother and aunts shopped. The eventual cooldrink and cake in the tearoom hardly compensated. Thus scarred, I eventually left the country. Only to find there was no escape. Wives had the same shopping tendencies, and related insensitivities towards accompanying males. And foreign countries had the same types of shops, in which these behaviours and attitudes could continue to run rampant. But with additional trauma. I now had to both endure the pain and pay – for the tea, the cake and the bleeding shopping. I should have stayed in SA, joined the EFF and got rid of the shops.
