What are we?
Ujuh is positioned as an alternative economic and business news platform geared towards maximisation of economic participation.
Ujuh draws its aspirations from the rich symbolism captured in its title. The title is derived from a Zulu word uju, which means honey. In line with the medicinal and sweet power of bee honey, Ujuh is designed to be the centre of economic empowerment via distribution of useful information. Ujuh is born as a community where South African economic actors gather to be empowered. You will find in our pages information which is deemed critical in the ambition of achieving total economic freedom.
The economy must be defended.
