The mouthpiece of the Drakensberg Region

About Us

We are a family based business and with our staff we make a skilled team with years of design & printing experience.

The Barkly East Reporter (now registered as The Reporter) came into being in 1886 as a newspaper. Mr W.A Mollentze purchased the business from Mr HB Nurse in 1926 and it has remained in the family ever since.

We provide employment for 15 staff members. We encourage different skills development and our current shop manageress has come through our development programme. We believe that a good education is the backbone of any nation, so our staff members are encouraged to provide the best possible education for their families. We actively promote many schools, businesses, and charities throughout the whole Joe Gqabi area.
