Eyethu Uthukela

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.

The Eyethu uThukela Newspaper is distributed to residents of the uThukela municipal district in KZN, which includes the area from historical Ladysmith to Ezakheni. This area has become an increasingly important commercial hub in the province as residents’ buying power has grown over the years and various businesses have moved into the locale.

Eyethu uThukela prides itself in bringing our readers up to date news from the area, and strive at all times to be regarded as an integral member of the community at large. The uThukela district is renowned for its close proximity to the beautiful Drakensberg mountains, and many of the towns in the region enjoy spectacular views of one of South Africa’s most admired natural wonders.
