Jacqueline Mhlanga began her career in an administrative role in the corporate world. Motivated by the passion to grow, she furthered her studies in marketing through the Institute of Marketing and Management.
Jacqueline had higher ambitions, that went beyond what the confines of the corporate world offered. In 2015, after leaving her job as a Marketing Officer, her sense of duty towards the communities around her grew.

Understanding the diverse cultures, from growing up in a township to working in a formerly closed off printing industry, Jacqueline saw an opportunity to bridge a gap. There were not enough print publications targeted at the township with valuable information. Communities lacked a sound publication that would be a vehicle for inspiration, empowerment and education. A publication to address societal issues in a positive manner by highlighting stories within the community and relevant to the community.

In November 2015, began the inception of a publication to solely focus on the needs of the township communities. Jacqueline loves people and this would be serve a long overdue unfulfilled passion of adding value to the communities. The birth of Cape Township Times was the beginning of a step towards bridging the gap.
