New South African search engine

A brand new South African search engine with a focus on the South African web has recently been launched.  Jonga has very fresh and functional search and search results interfaces.  Search results are displayed with related information in a side panel.  Take a look at this search on “Jacobson Attorneys” and see for yourself.

Here is the introductory post from the site’s launch on 5 December:

Welcome to jonga.co.za – a South African search engine born out of pure frustration with the lack of SA-relevant results returned by search engines.  Your comments, criticism and suggestions for jonga are always well received.

Good luck guys!  I am looking forward to many happy hours searching with Jonga.

What is happening with Jonga ?
Are they in some kind of legal pit for publishing news stories from other sites and have been forced to close down ?

That is a good question Tom. I have been wondering what has been happening with them. Republishing news stories from other sites is potentially protected under our ECT Act but there are certain requirements. I am curious to know what happened though.
