The list of townships in Johannesburg can never be complete without mentioning Tembisa. The name Tembisa comes from the Xhosa word “tembisa” meaning “promise”. With a population of approximately 463,109 people, Tembisa was established in 1957 when black people were resettled from Alexandra and other areas in Edenvale, KekkPark, Midrand and Germiston. Situated north of Kempton Park on the East Rand, Tembisa is a multicultural society and a hive of activity.
Rated as the second largest township in Gauteng, following Soweto, Tembisa is the home of the Tembisan community newspaper. This newspaper has endeared itself to the masses by reporting on issues of importance and newsworthy events which concern the local community. News and information covered in this newspaper embraces the different viewpoints and opinions of the local community.
With the Tembisan being the only newspaper distributed in a 340,000 household township, it pays to advertise in the Tembisan.
Tembisans 10,000 copies are distributed every Thursday into areas such as Kempton CBD, Olifantsfontein and Tembisa.
