Eyethu Umlazi

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.

Eyethu uMlazi one of Eyethu KwaZulu-Natal’s flagship titles as it is distributed to readers who find themselves residents of South Africa’s fourth largest township, after Soweto, Tembisa and Katlehong. Over the years uMlazi has become an increasingly important commercial centre in KZN as residents’ buying power has grown substantially and businesses have moved into the area.

The name, uMlazi, is believed to have derived from the Zulu word, “umlaza”, which refers to the sour acid produced by fermenting milk (tradition has it that King Shaka refused to drink water from a local river, claiming that it was “umlaza”). Whatever the origins may be, it is certain that our journalists strive for both excellence and unwavering integrity when it comes to reporting local news. Additionally, as a community newspaper, we are committed to building and maintaining trust with our large base of readers.
