Eyethu Edendale

Eyethu KwaZulu-Natal was born in 2008, and is currently the largest circulating Black owned newspaper brand in the Province. We are proud to point out that our 11 community based newspapers tally up a total of over 301 000 copies produced weekly. Our readership is extensive, and we have worked hard to gain trust as a credible and unbiased source of important community news. Moreover, we’d like highlight the fact that whereas isiZulu has been neglected as a language in the media in the past, it is the language of choice in our publications, naturally ensuring a large and loyal readership given KwaZulu-Natal’s demographic profile.

Residents of Edendale and Pietermaritzburg South know where to look when they are on the hunt for reliable news and information pertaining to their locale and community. Edendale, lying just outside Pietermaritzburg, has a complex heritage starting in 1851 when the Reverend James Allison, along with several African members of the Methodist Church, set out to develop a new settlement on the Vervordient farm. The land was divided among the group and they all became owners of the sub-divided farm. Due to interference from the Apartheid government, however, problems regarding ownership and settlement rights arose and the once idyllic farm became a contested area in the unfair politics of racial discrimination. Today, Edendale and Pietermaritzburg South form an important part of KwaZulu-Natal’s expanding interior, and both look forward to future development and sustainable economic prosperity.
