CXPRESS is published and distributed every week on a Wednesday, but at www.cxpress.co.za you can submit news any day of the week. When we run out of time or space on newsprint, this forum provides the perfect spot to include the many extra stories and images received. Now get typing – we're looking forward to hearing from you!
