'The first-ever issue of No 1 Vol 1 of the Nongqai appeared for the quarter-ending March 1907.

The Nongqai was published over a span of 54 years. Although the oldest magazine in South Africa was the African Journal, published in February 1824, the Nongqai counts among the earliest magazines in South Africa Since its inception the SAP magazine underwent several changes of name, i.e. Nongqai, Justitia, SARP, (SAP), and ultimately Servamus.'
