Open Gazettes is the largest freely available online collection of government gazettes in South Africa

OpenUp, the Southern African Legal Information Institute, Indigo Trust and the African Networks of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR), with support from Code for Africa, are building the biggest collection of freely available gazettes in South Africa.

Gazettes are a critical source of information and record of South African history. They should be easy to find and use, and freely available to everyone.

But lo and behold, no it was an article on a really good razor that you can use and pass on to your son or daughter one day because it'll last.
