Ladysmith Gazette

Much like the town of Ladysmith itself, The Ladysmith Gazette has witnessed many pivotal moments in South Africa’s rich and complex history, and, at a century old, the Gazette is as much a feature of Ladysmith as it numerous memorials are.

The Ladysmith Gazette is the only sold local newspaper in the town, but its sister publication, the Times of Ladysmith, is a free door to door title that reaches much of the town’s residents.

As a reputable source of local news, events, sports, educational happenings and commercial offerings, we strive to maintain the highest levels of journalistic excellence and integrity. Moreover, as the Ladysmith Gazette has become a trusted member of the local community, we continually aim to further build a strong respect-based relationship with our readers. The Gazette also keeps its keen fingers on the pulse of events in our surrounding areas, including: Bergville, Winterton, Colenso, Elandslaagte, Ezakheni, Steadville and Van Reenen.
