City Press Newspaper South Africa is English-language Sunday newspaper, published in Johannesburg, Gauteng. It is aimed at black readers and is the country’s third-biggest-selling newspaper.

The newspaper was established in 1982 as the Golden City Press by James R. A. Bailey and the South African Associated Newspapers (SAAN) group. The following year, “Golden” was dropped from the newspaper’s name. SAAN later withdrew from its partnership with Bailey and the newspaper ran into financial difficulties. Consequently, Nasionale Pers took over the publication of the newspaper as well as its sister publications, Drum and True Love & Family on 1 April 1984.

Its former editor was Khathu Mamaila.

The newspaper is distributed nationally and in neighboring countries, including Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland. It has a readership of about 2.5 million
