Maritzburg Sun

The Maritzburg Sun is a decade and a half young, and we are proud to say that we continually strive to provide high quality local news content to the residents of our beautiful and historic city. Whereas our distribution area concentrates on the northern, southern and central suburbs, our exceptional journalists are well informed about all happenings in the city and our surrounding areas as a whole.

Founded in 1838, the Maritzburg Sun currently serves as the capital of KZN, and is therefore important in the political administration of contemporary South Africa. Economically, the city can also claim success as it is industrious and exports aluminium and timber to various regions throughout the country. Pietermaritzburg, including surrounding areas like Edendale, is home to half a million South Africans of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and as such is a veritable melting-pot.

With regards to the latter, The Maritzburg Sun is keenly aware of the diversity of our current and potential audience, and we not only aim to show sensitivity to all the cultural heritages of our readership, but look forward to making this sensitivity a hallmark of our publication.
